I just bought the red front-fork below which has these metal caps on the V-brake mounts:
But my old fork looks something like the below, where the mounts are very different:
As you can see; those mounts are very different and the ones which my brake-assembly actually fit.
Hence I am wondering:
- Have I bought the wrong fork or can I remove those metal caps? If I can remove them, how do I do that? And if I do remove them will I find the same mount-type as the purple fork above? Any links/videos would be most welcome, thx.
- If I have bought the wrong fork, what is this brake mount-type called so that I do not repeat my mistake in the future?
Thanks for your help.
