    they are these

    M6 Aluminum Allen Head Bolt

    just choose what length that you want - I see they have a new category just for the bottle cage mounts . A word of warning is that the alloy is softer than steel so need to take care when tighteniong up - dont over torque them

    My own FTM build....

    Just now noticed that thread, sorry for doubling my topic that was posted previously, just can't refrain...

    Here is my FTM, black anodized frame has been bought from Bob (along with few small bits), size is S.
    Spec: SLX crankset, TALAS 09, Fulcrum Red Zone rear wheel, Red Metal 3 front 15 mm thru-axle, Maxxis Advantage LUST 2.1 tyre front, Crossmark LUST 2.1 rear, Magura Marta 180mm front, Marta SL 180mm rear, drive: SLX front, SRAM x.9 rear medium cage, both SRAM X.0 twisters, Truvativ Stylo team handlebar, FSA OS190 steam, Crank Brothers Joplin J3 seatpost, Cane Creek S3 headset, flat magnesium pedals

    around 28.5 lbs total.

    not the lightest one, but that wasn't a goal and the convenience of adjustable seatpost more then worth it..
    built it myself...

    Dude that is sick. Also, can you post a close up of your cable routing next to the seat collar? The way you did that looks really nice and could solve a problem of the cable rubbing/scoring the FTM/ML linkage.

    Since this thread is linked to the setup/pics post I thought I'd ask this here so I didn't start a new post...

    Does anyone know the shock bolt sizes on the FTM (aluminum)?

    Shock-to-rocker (1 bolt)


    Shock-to-frame bracket (2 bolts)



    I'm not too concerned with any washers or any other bolts on the frame. Just the shock mounting bolts. I am thinking Ti. Extra few grams off won't make a difference but then it means I can increase it somewhere else.

    DO NOT RPLACE THOSE BOLTS WITH TI !!!

    I bent the stock steel bolt on the rocker multipule times. Ti will just shear off insted of bending.

    Also the front is a screw on one side and a pin on the other. It isn't two bolts on each side.

    Sound advice. I had no clue you could bend those especially when they are steel.
