thanks moldyshorts, at least i can have an idea of how big the screw is and go to local hardware store to buy a couple and match up. if you dont mind, can you post up a picture of how it is installed onto the bike so i can see what other hardwares are needed. i called my LBS that are Raleigh dealers and they dont know the answer. called Raleigh and they dont know either!

Don't mind how very dirty this looks. I need to sit down and clean off the rust and stop over lubing my chain.
and this is my bike for good measure. http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/6018/dscn0175f.jpg

well, if you have the other one, unscrew it all the way and bring it to a hardware store. they should have a pegboard with nuts and bolts on it, and you test the screw to see what size/threading you'll need.
if you have neither, just bring the bike in, explain whats up, and they should just let you try out bolts til you find the ones that work.

Normally, those screws are metric, either M3 or M4.

so it looks like just a long allen head screw. the head size doesnt really matter to me since i dont have both of them. i just need to know the thread size so i can find 2 screws to fit in there.
