Got a couple of bar clamps for X0 shifters but cannot find any bolts that fit them in my toolbox.

Anyone have an idea what thread and length they should be?

It's M5, just over 2cm in length. It's only threaded about the final third, but I'm sure an M5 bolt threaded all the way will be just fine :wink:

Cheers

Neil :D

nope they are M5, and from memory about 16 mm long - I replaced loads of them with Al alloy bolts recently.

^^^^ that's really weird coz the photo makes them look smaller than M5 ... mine are M5;

I have about 6 of these - M5 measured this morning - exactly like in photo above - cost would be to cover poptage plus cash donation of your choice. :?
