    newbie old school question avid bb7 and white brothers 29er bw 1.0

    Howdy. I'm finally giving in and going disc brakes. I have a bb7 trying to mount on a white brothers bw 1.0 from 04. issue seems to be that the disc brake mechanism uses 5mm bolts while the disc brake mount in the white brothers is 6mm. I have two of these forks and they are both the same. Incompatible or am I missing something. Thanks old timers!!!

    If it's a PM fork then just get a rat tail file and make the holes in the brake caliper and in the cps washers a bit bigger.

    Normal IS mounts on both the fork and brake bracket, and both use M6 bolts.

    The only 5mm bolt on the BB7 is the cable anchor.

    Do not need an "old timer" for 2004 and it is far from "old school".

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
