    Hi,

    So I stripped my road bike recently and long story short two of the frame mounting bolts have gone missing.  I was hoping to find replacements but sods law will say they are bespoke.  Link to the part and where they are mounted in the frame:

    Search for barrel nuts or cross dowels. Length might be a bit different but they’re a common enough concept.

    Thanks @onzadog

    Cool, i’ll get searching. I’ll give the local bike shops a try as well.

    If you search for barrel nuts you might be able to find something suitable. The ones I have seen on Whyte bikes the threaded hole is centered not offset like yours. If you search barrel nut on ebay you should be able to get some M6 ones for a few quid, if you can find long ones you could shorten one end to match yours, just check the OD and thread pitch.

    Nice one, thanks @bigyan
    <div class=”bbp-author-role”>Yeah ive done a few searches and found some barrel nuts that could fit, the offset makes it difficult but I think it will be ok if I can find one to cut down like you say.</div>

    12-30mm long for £1.79-£2.99 for 2 seems worth a shot, no mention of OD though;

    Could make a set easily enough, but it would be a lot cheaper to buy and modify than turn drill and tap.

    Ah brilliant, thanks Bigyan!  That’s perfect.  I worked out if I buy the 25mm bolt one side will be centred so I just need to cut/file down the other side to fit.

    The dowel measures appx 9mm in diameter so finger crossed it will fit.
