    New question here. How to mount avid mech rear on stumpjumper?

    I ordered a front and rear 160mm avid mechanical set for my 2004 stumpjumper FSR. I put on the front one without much trouble, but just realized that the caliper mounting tabs on the rear left seat stay are not threaded. How is the caliper bracket mounted to the rear frame? Do I need to call avid and get something like nuts and longer bolts?

    Frame shouldn't have threads - the brake mounting bracket does though.

    I'm a dumbass. Thanks for pointing out [what should have been] the obvious. I should do this when I'm not so tired.
