I've just bought a really nice '96 LTS on ebay but discovered that one of the chainstay pivot bolts is missing (the seller oddly hasn't been returning my messages about this concern !). I know I can get hold of these as part of a £30 bushing kit but I literally only need the one bolt. The bolt is oddly the same as a chainring bolt but is a lot longer.

Has anyone got a spare one kicking around I could get hold of ?

I'll have a look as I have some spare bits in the garage. You could treat your bike to a bearing upgrade from betd. The full bikes worth runs quite expensive but you can get the drop out kit for about £25 iirc.

If you could take a look, that would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

As a thought, the bolt looks very similar to a chainring bolt and looks like the same thread (but it’s not long enough). Has anyone tried using an extra long chainring bolt as a replacement ?
