    XT FD M771 Direct Mount bolt ?????

    I purchased a XT FD M771 direct mount front derailleur off ebay for my new Santa Cruz Blur LTc. It appears to be brand new but did not come with the mounting bolt. I checked the Shimano tech site and I could not find the size.

    Does anyone know what size (size, length, thread pitch) bolt I need to use. Please help, I would like to get this thing rolling this week.

    The Shimano bolt is a standard 6mm x 1.0 bolt. The length will depend on whether the bolt hole in the frame is open or closed at the bottom. The one supplied is about 15mm long. Thread a bolt in and confirm that it doesn't bottom out before mounting the derailleur.

    Thanks. It was a M6 x 1.0 x 16mm. Worked perfect.
