    XTR Crank Fixing Bolts for M950/952?

    Does anyone know of a source for these self-extracting bolts or compatible parts?

    Not sure if FSA bolts or Shimano road bolts fit the XTR cranks.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    my local shop had one in the spare bits bin in steel, I grabbed it so I could torque down the cranks, then replace with the Al bolt (and re-torque). New replacements I'm not sure of the size, but toronto cycles has Ti and Al crank bolts in several sizes (I'd measure but I'm nowhere near my bike or tools, unfortunately)

    torontocycles.com/Selling/Chainrings_and_Cranks.html

    edit: Road octalink V1 bb are the same (but slightly different width) so I expect the bolts would be the same. BUT, it is shimano and it IS XTR, they like to do it different for engineered obsolescence...

    Thanks for the response.

    The Toronto Cycles bolts are $33 shipped...pricey.

    I'll check with the LBS when they open back up after the new year.

    Durace and 105 from the same era should fit fine, the bottom brackets work with the 95x stuff.

    Perfect, thanks for the confirmation - just picked up a set of DA bolts.

    I've got two of those bolts, NOS, sitting in my loft. I fitted SRP bolts to the crankset when I put my 92 MErlin together (back in 92). I must get that old box down from the loft
