    BB7 issue

    Hi all,

    I am installing my BB7's on te stock redline fork but am having an issue. The bottom bolt connecting the caliper to the IS adapter is rubbing on the rotor. Is this a common issue or am I doing something wrong? Do I need a washer in there somewhere? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    since you want to have less 'bolt' coming out the backside of the caliper, stick a washer or two between the adapter and the caliper (both bolts). I had the same issue with my brakes when installing them (not BB7s), at least it's an easy fix...
