    mastodon fork question

    I bought a mastodon fork for my build and have a question about the size of bolt needed to attach the caliper to the fork. I'm installing XTR brakes and the bolts seem to be too large. I checked with a set of taps and it looks like it's an M5x.0.9. Problem is that 0.9 is not made (at least often) The xtr bolts look to be m5-1.0, a common size. I did email manatou but no response. Has anyone else had issue mounting the calipers to these forks?
    Thanks!

    It's late and I should be sleeping, so maybe I'm too fuzzy to answer this. But aren't most (including all Manitou forks) caliper bolts M6? M5 are like water bottle bolts and disc rotor bolts, right?

    Same experience. Unbolted caliper from stock CF fork and bolted on to Mastodon. Done.
