Got the MacNeil loden v2 and I need top tube brAke mounts but it's a very small screw and I don't know what size and kit to buy off danscomp or if they even have it

Pics of the brake mount holes in the frame? I can't find anything on Google to go by

Me either but a normal gyro tab wolnt fit in it so its smaller I have no idea how to find the size

Does it look like this, small hole with a more curved surrounding area


or is it more like this with a small hole, and more of a flat area where it meets?

or is it a bigger one, almost the width of say a 3/8" axle or axle bolt? If it's a bigger one, it'll be harder to measure, but if it's one of the smaller ones, I'm pretty sure they only come in 1 thread size but have different styles

No the ones that screw into the top tube to hold the brake cable

Shit I'm a retard haha.

A normal gyro tab bolt won't fit? Weird, they're usually the same size. Well you could email them and see if they can tell you, but since it's the weekend they probably won't reply till Monday or so...

But you could go to a hardware store in the meantime and try different sizes of bolts until you find one that fits and that'll give you the size/thread count that way. Maybe they can even measure it for you but idk if Lowes or Home Depot do that offhand.

They don't sell brake mounts, cable mounts but they sell and measure hardware.

I'd send macniel an e-mail
