    Removing cantilever studs

    Anyone experienced problems removing the cantilever/v-brake studs off a rear triangle MOTOBECANE?

    These studs are rounded at the base with out the flat spots for a wrench.

    I am afraid that if I squeeze them with a lock channel they are going to crush...

    Any suggestions?

    thanks.

    Disc brakes are a fad, just mount some v brakes to them.

    If that doesn't work and you crush them with channel locks, go full bubba with a dremmel and then smooth it over with some JB weld.

    you could find a bolt with the same thread and thread the bold into the v-brake studs; that should reduce the chances of you crushing them.

    good luck.

    Put them to use and mount up an Old Man Mountain rack to the posts. Then you have an even more useful bike.

    Well forensic revealed these are not removable, so they'll have to stay since they'll be needed for future duties.

    Even if you aren't using them, it is prudent to thread a bolt in to keep muck out. I don't know if the end user can buy these, but a few companies ship their bikes/forks that have optional canti studs with a plastic cover.

    They're quite snug, but ugly as hell.

    Jenson USA sells these plugs for the stud holes, I've seen those you speak of too.
