Did you get "bosses" or "bolts"? Bontrager MTBs (at least the ones that I've owned) do not have rear bosses. A long bolt holds the rear brakes in place instead.Boy named SSue said:I got a set from Bontrager directly a year or so back. Give them a try.

Not a bad idea... I tried installing a set of Avid Ultimate direct pull brakes on my Race Lite, and it will not work with the stock Bontrager set-up. I forget what the issue was exactly, but the set up would not work (the arms were not held on securely). I have an Ultimate on the front, and a Avid Mag on the rear as a result. Real bosses would fix that.flyingsuperpetis said:Blasphemy, I know, but I bored & tapped mine for a pair of standard 8mm ti studs, and now I can run grafton speed controllers without (as much) cursing. I do like knowing they won't corrode and/or split like the ones they replaced, plus they're a bit more solid than that puny bolt. Noticably? Of course not.
