Whats up guys,
I need a little help with installing my 85 Dia comp 901's. I have an MCS frame magnum from 89 and it seems like the bolt on the brake caliper is too long. What do you guys suggest? All of the hardware is there including the spacers. Should I get another washer from Lowes? Can you guys post some pics? I really appreciate it.
Thanks

You probably have a front brake. You should be able to purchase a rear brake bolt and simply swap over all the hardware.
This should work...

assuming you do have a rear brake (the MCS has a flat plate to mount it on, correct?), just put some spacers/washers on it.

if you have an fairly old bike shop around, you might be able to find some old spacers for this that were long enough to only need to use one (for a cleaner look).

Buy yourself a correct-sized Die to cut new threads beyond the grip-length, and have that carrier-bolt be ultra low-profile.

Thanks guys, I found the right spacer at porkchop bmx. He had the wider one. Thanks again!
