I fine mess, Ollie

Taking off the rear wheel to put on a new tire, I started with removing the Pyramid CF Hugger. One screw came out nicely and the other with great difficulty, taking a serious dog-leg coming out and then it would screw out no further. I removed the 17mm bracket from the rear caliper (the bracket replaces the stock caliper bolt) with Hugger in tow, cut the screw off thinking I'd work on the screw stubb in a vise without the Hugger flopping around. In a vise, that stub would not budge. I cut it off, drilled out the screw, went to clean out the threads and that tap got stuck and snapped off.

None of the U.S. distributors have spare parts or extra mounting kits. I have contacted Pyramid in the U.K. and we'll see what comes of that. If no response from them, I'll have to either have a new bracket milled down or I'll cram 'n braze a bolt thread in the old one and attach the hugger with a grommeted nut.

Anyone else have a similar problem? I swear that screw hole was bored out off center. Anyone know of parts available here in the U.S.?

I too had problems with the front screw the last rear tire change. I stripped out the head of the screw and had similar issues, but luckily mine came out with an easy out.

I found new metric screws at the Home Depot (though not socket head) and used anti-seize when I replaced it.

Here's your fix Stan, Pyramid Hugger Modification

2-1/2 years later and everything is still as solid as day one.

If you lightly chamfer the bottom edge of the rear brake pads, there's no need to remove the rear caliper at all. just something to keep in mind for future reference.
