    Help.. Installing BB7 kit on Fly XC

    Just received my XC (yay) and I'm having trouble mounting the rear brake onto the frame. I assume for the front I mount the brake without the red placer (done already). The problem I have with the rear brake is that the mounts on the frame are unthreaded, so I can't figure out how to screw the bolts in.

    Help greatly appreciated. My LBS is booked til the end of next week and I stayed home just to receive the bike

    P.s. Is the bottom of the SID Race supposed to be hollow, cuz mine's not covered.

    Blah I fail again.

    Google is my friend, go this from the SID description
    A short upper tube length and hollow bottom lower leg ensures that SID still remains a true light weight despite its increased rigidity.
    If you still have your 9357, look under the fork and it's.. hollow aside from the Air minus and something else. Bike's at the shop atm, BD didn't include brake cables with the BB7 kit (even though it mentions "included" in the product description)

    My Fly is a 2008, so it came with the older SID race. I guess if Rockshox says it is hollow then it should be hollow.
