    Hey do you need some sort of adapter to run V brakes on a four bolt frame? It looked like that echo in the media section didnt have one, but Im just checking..if you do need an adapter where can you get one?

    Yes. You need an adaptor. I'm not sure where to get one though. The one in the media section has Canit bolts with magura threads on them. Very clever and looks very clean. I think he made them himself or something.

    so all you need is a 5m thread then and something to take up the leftover space inside the brake arm? that is if you dont have an adapter

    A loose affiliation of creative people ,who can't ever finish a project.Forcast their their arrival on the market just after Interbike 2007.

    I've already got 20 sets of v-brake bosses, just no motivation to finish the rest of the project.

    So....No.....aside from woodmans sad attempt...They don't really exist...
