    2008 orange p7 pro issue

    Bought this new bike from stif 4 weeks ago and have been riding it almost every day! Only problem is after every demanding ride the Rear disc caliper/frame mounting bolts come loose! So i tightened them up really tight each time. The problem has persisted.
    Threadlock hasn't helped; will not stay rigid = v.annoying!
    This is the only let down on an otherwise perfect bike!
    Has annyone got any suggestions for what to do? Cheers!

    Same Problem

    I had the exact same problem with my P7 which I bought in October 2008. The threads inside the plate completely disintegrated and so the screws could not be tightened up. Fortunately the bike is still under warranty. I took it back to the shop I bought it from and they replaced it free of charge.

    I think the under-lying problem is that the bracket is made from soft alluminium.

    Hi,
    It might be a bit late - but I have a 3rd bolt on the 2009 model on the brake side to help alleviate this problem. The bike shop (Kudubikes) suggested that this could be retrofitted after asking about this issue. I would say it is worth checking to see if you can obtain one as they seem to have fixed it.
