A favour please... (rear brake rod length)
« on: 09.08. 2018 09:52 »
Could someone with a plunger A7 or A10 measure the rear brake rod please? I need to specify a length for Barleycorn to make one and I'm not 100% sure that the existing rod is correct.
Thanks.

I'm away from home until the weekend. I'll measure my brake rod when I get back.

Just measured my plunger A7 and it's 22.5 inches. Hope this helps.

Steve.

Thanks for the replies; it seems like the rod that came with the bike was correct after all. Thanks again for the info.

I'm home.

  Ditto (except mine didn't come with it )   I guess I don't need to go looking for another after all.. *wink2*
