Hi there!

Image

My new rear eebrake seems not fit with the dogma f8 as the top lever hitting the frame (44cm frame... very small). Anyone knows how to fix this issue?
Million thanks.

hard to tell from the pic. its possible to put a spacer on the bolt to move it away from the seat post where i think it hits. also, once you have the cable in and adjusted, i don't think the lever goes that high to even touch the frame.

Same issue as you, and no real solution to make it work correctly :(

Hi Tom,

i would contact Craig directly. He is very nice and responds very quickly. If anyone can help you make this work at it's best, or at all, i think Craig is your man.

Send him pictures and explain and i am sure he will look in to it for you.

Be kind let us know how it goes ;-)

I keep my thumbs in the meanwhile...

HI all,

Thanks for all the input but sadly I have chosen to get refund. I think eebrakes will never fit a small frame dogma...

Any solutions found? I literally was about to bite the bullet and purchase the brakes tomorrow for my 46.5 F8 frame and stumbled upon this thread. Thanks WW forum!

I did a search on this, and it seems it will not fit even a size 47 so i guess 46.5 is out.

I would encourage anyone to contact Craig from EE with any questions. I had an install question and he got back to me quickly and politely. Very helpful customer experience.

I have a set of EEbrakes due to be mounted on my 56cm F10. I hope it works!

Would not expect a problem. I have them on a F8 50 cm. I would suggest segmented cable at least for the rear, easier to tune for length.

Any frame smaller than 50cm EEbrakes will not fit.
