    Derailleur bolt

    Does anybody know the size and pitch of the shifter cable bolt for a Shimano deore fd? Had went on a ride with no cable and the bolt apparently not fully tightened, it backed out and is now somwhere on 20 miles of trail

    Thank you

    It is most likely standard metric M5 bolt with an allen head.

    Thanks, finally got it figured out. Turns out that the bolt does not thread directly into the derailleur as I had previously thought but rather there is a nut that was in there that I was also missing. I just went to a shop and they pulled me a bolt and nut from their scrap parts bin.
