    2008 Scalpel Linkage Bolts

    Hi,
    Can someone advise me as too the dimensions of the Scalpels (100 mm travel) shock-mount and linkage bolts (pitch, length, thread size, etc.). I'm looking to get some titanium bolts through a local deal that ends tonight, and I don't have time to disassemble my bolts to measure (big race sunday, preriding course tonight and tomorrow).
    Thanks for any help.

    Yes, little deal through a local shop owned by a buddy.
    Is that a bad idea? Because this isn't gonna cost me anymore than replacing the one I snapped off overtightening (rookie mistake by me, didn't have my torque wrench with me).

    Right now I'm running a bolt the LBS tossed on from a Specialized, seems to fit, but sticks out a little far. They said best to replace it soon, but it will get the job done for the race this weekend.
