        I try to translate it
        You can not turning arround the eccentric all the way because there are two pieces block that.
        The break caliper and this hexagonal screw on the brake caliper holder.



        You can not change the breake caliper but you can change the hexagonal screw on the brake caliper holder into a hexagon socket countersunk flat head screw.



        I hope you understand it

              will that much adjustment change the ride height any significant amount.
              thanks

                Any idea on how this could be done properly?

                  That would involve taking the bolt out and matching it up with a countersunk allen keyed/torx/whatever, flathead bolt.
                  I would expect you'll have to countersink the hole as well to achieve the flush mount bolt head that you're after...
                  Something like this...

                      you should make sure your chain is set right, before yuo could leave it like that. well couldnt that be a problem?

                        BTW:
                        Metric fasteners are countersunk at 90 degrees. Imperial countersink tools are 82 degrees. (If it makes any difference)

                          God knows how far I'm gonna have to travel to find one that works. Local hardware doesn't carry much if any metric.

                            Ok, I got the right bolt that would mount flush after I countersunk it. I decided to put the chain on and flip the eccentric before doing any drilling. Good thing. It can be done and would raise the rear about 1-2 inches but, it makes your chain rub on the chain slide way to much. Would probably eat it away quick. Gonna skip trying this one.

                              that was something that crossed my mind too

                              for the guys that have done this mod
                              do you find the chain rubbs on the top of the chain slider to much???
