- Shimano Crankarm Pinch Bolts
not exactly the same but do the job.don’t round off as easily.
sjs cycles do a pack of 2 of the genuine shimano ones for about £4 (+£2.50 postage) if you need the real ones.
I had problems with the shimano ones. rounded with just a small allen key. no probs since I switched (touch wood)
Edit : have emailed you. I’ve got some spare screwfix ones i’ll send you.Posted 7 years agobristolbikerMember
Went the same route as loum, but I usually buy in batches to deck a whole bike out in A4 stainless bolts, rather than buying bulk bags, so get them from this guy and pay a bit of a premium.
NB: use as long a thread as is practical (I can’t remember what that is, though the pinch bolt holes are threaded all the way through – may well be 20 mm. OE bolts are very short, require moderate torque and screw into cheese…..)Posted 7 years agoloumMember

I couldn’t get a standard bolt to fit my SLX crank. As it tightened the head moves to edge of the recessed hole hence why the heads are tapered. I wouldn’t use a stainless bolt as it will strip the threads from the crank rather than shear if your stupid enough to over tighten itPosted 6 years agoLeighMember
A standard socket cap bolt head wouldn’t fit in the hole, so £3.50 to have a new pair that fitted without having to grind the heads down, go to anywhere to find any that did was a good deal as I rang my lbs and they got a set and they dropped them off with me so it didn’t cost me any time or travel…Posted 6 years ago
