Okay I admit it I'm lazy... :? I have a Campy seatpost binder and I'm looking for a TI bolt for it. Can anyone tell me what size I'll need?

Thanks in advanced. 8)

M6 X 1mm Pitch X 20mm long, and the diameter of the head needs to around 9.5mm or there may be some clearance issues in the counterbore of the clamp.

I could not find Ti bolts with the slightly smaller head size needed so I carefully chucked the bolt into a drill press and as it spun around sanded the head to the slightly smaller size. Not removing much - just "enough"

Did the same but titanium is critical here since the special clamp needs at least 9 nm and the bold in this size should hold about 7 nm. Still not sure if titanium is wise for this purpose (will show in time)

Sneeze twice before every ride and you'll save the same amount of weight for free :lol:
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!
