I recently came across this site while searching for information on my retro crankset, an XTR M950.

The 8mm hex bolt that secure the crank arm to the BB has the head stripped so it cannot be tightened or removed easily. I'm trying to find two replacement bolts (one for each side).

The BB has Octalink V1 spline and I understand others have used Ultegra BBs with this crank.

Tried ordering the bolts from ukbikestore.co.uk, the only place that showed to have them available, but to no avail :(

So I'm asking you guys if you know any good place to get this bolt from. Can I source it from another BB or crank? Will any Octalink V1 bolt do?

Thanks

These screws are rather expensive. Expect 10 GBP each.

Any bolt will do, well ones that suit the octalink style bb.

Do you know any other octalink v1 cranks that I could look under?
