Okay, so I have a local source that can help me with EVERY nut and bolt I need. GREAT! :)

I have to source a pair of M6 brake posts for my Mega Air fork through the U.S. No big deal. :)

This leaves me with only 2 (!!!) piece's that I CAN'T find. :mad: My NRS uses M10 threads for the rear brake posts (why?!?!?!??!). I can find M6 and M8 noooooo problem, but nothing in M10.

Anyone seen these around? I don't care if they're ti or al.

PATIA!

(Why do I have a baaaad feeling about needing to make something here? :( )

Yeah, he came up in a Search here, but it seem's as though he dropped off the face of the Earth early this year. :confused: I sent him an e-mail anyways.

Thanks! :)

(twiddles thumbs waiting) :D

just make sure they're the right size ...M10 can have a pitch (distance between each thread) of 1, 1.25 or 1.5
As far as I know, brake 10mm linear brake studs are all the same.

Hmmm, interesting. I never thought about the different thread pitch. I just assumed they'd all be the same (M10 - standard amongst manufacturers). I guess i'll just have to take my chances. Thanks for speaking up Eurorider! I'll be sure to double-check the pitch before I start screwing. :D

Fisty - you have a P.M. Okay, you're about to get a P.M. Bah, you know what I mean! ;)

Thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!! My resolution is to get the NRS down to 22.something pounds this year. ;) Looks like a piece of cake so far. Albeit an expensive one! :p :D :( ;) :) :cool:

(stands and applauds) No ******* way!!!!!!!!! He's in TO, too!!!!!! Thank you VERY much kind sir!! I gotta pay tax, but this means i'll have them NOW! Ah, impatience IS a virtue. ;) WOOHOO!!!!!

Oh, just for reference, in case anyone out there needs to know, my NRS has M10 x 1.0 brake studs on the rear. Hopefully Giant didn't change this through the years.

I got to thinkin and my thought was that Giant is the only one who has a different type post on their frames. Ide check to be sure i could be wrong.
