    2015 Dakar XCT Team frame rear brake boss!

    Anyone have the bolt in the rear break strip out?! This was a warranty frame for a 2014 pro frame that was a warranty for a 2013 pro frame. The weird thing is when my local shop took it apart to look at it there was already a helicoil in one of the holes. I doubt it came that way from Jamis so it must have been the shop that swapped the parts from the broke frame that stripped the top one.

    It's 150 miles road trip to that shop and that's the closest Jamis dealer to me so I really don't want to make the 2 or 3 trips to them and have to wait six weeks again.

    My shop I deal with in town said this one is so stripped he probably can't use a helicoil or will have to use an oversized one. When I first got it back they didn't use an adapter on the rear to go from a 140 mm to 160mm disc but just used SRAM washers. When we put the proper adapter on the bolts they used where bent so I am sure that's how it got stripped and why the front had an adapter in what was supposed to be a new frame.

    To say I'm frustrated would be an understatement!

    Problem solved and was an easy fix. My shop drilled it out put a stainless insert in like the front. Had a machinist look at it and he said it's much stronger than it was and should never had an issue again.

    As usual Jamis customer service was very responsive. They truly do have the best customer service in the industry.
