If there was a Gravitas expert in my area i'd gladly take it there...come to think of it, if it required an expert to install them i'd probably just sell them and get some EE brakes.
thanks for the advice thoughI only know of one length bolt but could be wrong.
there are actually 2 different length bolts. 10mm and 12mm.
Like I said, that's why they are "mechanics".
Not trying to give you a hard time but these brakes are so easy to work on...
What do you need to get them going? I'm a Ciamillo rep and know that Ted is in a spot right now that he cant possibly focus on everything at once. Lets just say he has a lot on his plate and if we want to continue to see super light brakes and cranks from a boutique US manufacturer we all have to be a little patient, from distributors waiting on large orders to customers waiting on spare parts...
On behalf of the brand I want to extend an apology for Ted because I understand how frustrating it is to purchase something expensive and be excited about it, only to be disappointed.
I am in The Netherlands but can certainly facilitate communication, or if need be can send out parts from here and wait for Ted to reimburse me. Who did you purchase the Gravitas SL from? Better yet, PM or email me and lets talk about set-up, and start from the beginning.
Thanks for offering me some help. I don't mean to be a prick but i feel that i'm being stuffed around.
I need 2 washers that go on the pinch bolts and the aluminium bung that the end of the spring pushes into. The bung gets inserted into a hole in the caliper arm.
Ted replaced the damaged caliper arm but it didn't come with the bung. I tried to remove the one on the damaged caliper arm but it seems like it's glued in...or pressed in and impossible to remove.
I purchased the brakes 'brand new' off ebay. Gravitas SL 2013, From an Authorized Reseller/Distributor. Ted has confirmed this.
(though he does discourage ebay sales as it's hard to track and verify the newness of the stock)
Like i said to Ted, I am happy to pay for the items and 'express registered shipping' so i can track the item.
