Was out today when my b screw snapped on my x0 rear mech! :shock:

Anyone know what size it would be so I can get me a new one?!

Depending on the age of the mech does it look like a grub screw or a proper screw? I have an older mech on my pace which is a grub screw whereas the newer oe I have is a proper screw. The older one doesn't have a carbon cage and if it is one of them I can send you a few on Tuesday if you like as I bought a bag off eBay but cannot remember the size....

It's a newer one with a proper screw going in! I have lifted a limit screw from an old lx mech I had lying about, seems to be working now!

Wierd!? Must be a model year change or something!

Mines definitely the screw type as the top half was still screwed in!
