What size bolt?

Hey all,

On the road working a UCI bike stage race and noted a missing bolt. Does anyone know the size / specs or the lower missing bolt? Hoping I can replace with a stainless steel one from a Lowes or similar.

Canít say but looks similar to that one remaining. Take it out and try it...if so , check for depth. Take that one with you for sizing?

One thing you can do, remove the bolt next to it, check if it can be used (you'll see at the same time if you need a longer/shorter one) then bring that bolt to the store.

Most of the hardware/home improvements stores don't have a lot of metric fastener, you might not find stainless, get a regular one, then change it when home.

Hope this helps.
