I just purchased a set of mechanical disc brakes but it didnt come with bolts and spacers to fix the caliper mounts to the frame. Anyone know where to buy the bolts and spaces and what size are they so I know what to ask for?

How about your local professional bike shop,
since they will get to ask you about all the specifics you leave out.
in asking this forum, take your bike with you.

The local bike shop should have what you need. For the record, it's a M6x1 bolt, typically about 20mm length, but just show the LBS "hey, it's these here" on one of their bikes and they'll get you fixed up.

I have 1 sample but didnt know what size they are. I think M6x1 20mm sounds about right based on measurement of it.

IIRC (it's been a while), the bolts for post mounts (as on some front forks) may be longer than those for tab mounts.
