The idea was brought up in a post on MTBR.com of a list of bolt specs for specific parts and there is no retailer with one avaliable. I am going to try to create a database.

If you have the specifics for the required bolts for a part, please email it to me at

For example, I know thompson stems need 6 M5 X 0.8 X 20.
Does anyone know what a set of Avid Ti v-brakes need? Are they the same as Avid Mag v-brakes?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, they are exactly the same. The avid mags have magnesium arms, and steel bushings and hardware, and the Ti's have aluminum arms, aluminum bushings and Ti hardware.
