i have a commencal absolut crmo frame and i want to run v brake in the rear. it has 3 bolts on both sides of the upper chainstay presumably to fit a brake post to. im having trouble finding a brake post to fit in the hole though. the only brake posts i can find are for sus forks and the thread is to big to fit in hol in the frame.
is it usually a smaller thread for rear brake post studs or have i got a twat of a frame?
does anyone know where i can get one?
thanks in advance

They have them on the Bonthrone Bikes website I think with the removable rear “V”brake. You could try contacting them direct to see what you may need. The description I saw somewhere also said Tektro V-brake on the rear.
