    Ah i see where you got this now from the tech sheet but it says the AM is also the same which it is not so i'm unsure if that is the correct size mounting hardware. I think the dimensions you listed are for bushings.

    Can anyone confirm M8 x 16mm ?

    This info was from an e-mailed sheet that Volker sent to me back in Feb 08 and copied to Cane Creek. It lists all the BUSHING sizes ( the axle length from inside face to inside face of mounting or lever) for the different models, but perhaps they changed for 09? I would e-mail Simon or Falco just in case. I've retyped some of it here:

    CC 200 shock L 24 x 6 front 49 x 8 rear
    FR 07 " 16 x 8 49 x 8
    FR08 " 16 x 8 42 x 8
    ST 223 shock L 16 x 8 49 x 8
    UFO ST " 40 x 8 42 x 8

    I was considering replacing the bolts with titanium bolts on my bikes, but will check with Nicolai first to make sure there would be no strength issues?

    I will measure the bushings tonight to check but it looks like thats what those are as the front shock mount bolt is alot longer than 16mm.

    The front bushings are small so 16mm would be about right and the back bushings are quite big so 42mm could be right too i'll check.
