Do rotor bolts generaly come with the disk hubs or with the set of brakes. Same w/ the mounting bolts to mount the caliper to the frame...seperately or w/ the brakeset? I've got a new rear brake but neither set of bolts came with it. :(

Thanks.

All the bolts for disc brakes should come with the brake & rotor. At least, that's the only way I've ever seen 'em come.

That figures. I won the brakes at a race, and they came in a plastic bag, not the box I'm sure they were originally in. Oh well, I should be able to get those bolt cheap somewhere...

Thanks BV! :)

Lots of time you get "brown boxed" (i.e. non-retail packaged) items at races that don't come with standard parts... No reason your LBS shouldn't have the bolts, though.
