    Etype bracket front dellaurier. Pls help

    Hi,
    My giant uses etype bracket for front dellaurier. Recently I removed dellaurier and I noticed that etype bracke has no stiff connection to bb. You can run bracket around. Is that the way it suppose to be? After bolting dellaurier to the bracket the whole thing still moves slightly. After cable attached it looks to be ok.
    So the main question is , should etype bracket be somehow stiffened to bb?
    Thanks
    JZ

    It's held captive by the threaded bottom bracket. If it's freely rotating, the bottom bracket may have loosened. Re-torque the BB.

    Thank you. So in that case it is posibble that giant factory assembled my bike wrong way? It was first time ever I removed front dellaurier. I will disassemble this again to have another look.
