I've been thinking we could do with a standard bolt size sticky, maybe in the wiki? And allen, dome head types etc?

on that stem though, most probably m6
m5 is normally for xc based stems


Well the allen bolt head takes a 5mm allen key if that helps?

Yeah m6x1 should be correct
Make sure you get the right length though :wink:

Measure yours but dont include the head in measurements

if only it were that easy .... there are M5 bolts which take 5 mm allen key, such as those used on SRAM X0 shifters but that is an exception, rather than the rule.

only sure way is to remove bolt and measure thread diameter.
