    Missing bolt from my drop out on M2?

    So I picked up the DB from the shop and flatted early and saw the rear drop out had come loose. Got it back together but was wondering is there a bolt that goes above in that hole right above the rear skewer? I have Mavic Crossmax ST's on the bike and don't recall if a bolt or something goes in there to attach the rd hanger better than just the skewer.

    Thanks

    I pulled up some stock photos and it appears that there is no bolt there. Hope I'm right and it doesnt fly off.

    There should be a bolt there. My frame had one, and it looked just like a chainring bolt. It may even be the same size (and therefore easy to replace), but I'm not sure.

    I guess every lbs makes mistakes just glad it only resulted in a flat tube. I picked it up after some minor work was done to it and guess they forgot to put it back.
