Salsa Flip-lock screw?

Hi everyone,

A few months ago I bought a Salsa Flip-Lock (http://www.salsacycles.com/skewers.html) 30mm for my bike to use on the stem. I only recently got around to trying to install it but when I tried, I realized that somehow I misplaced the screw that holds the clamp together!

Does anyone know the size and length of this screw and where I might be able to find a replacement? Thanks!

RVD.

I've got one on my bike, albeit 28.6. I was heading to the hardware store today anyways. I'll see if I can match up the thread pitch and length while I'm there.

Okay,
M5 - .8 pitch - 40mm length
Shouldn't cost more than $1 or so.

I'd try a bike shop before you go to a hardware store. My local hardware store has a larger selection of screws than than big box home improvement stores, and they didn't have the correct length in stock. Worst case scenario, try contacting Salsa.

Thanks Shang...you rock! I will try a few stores. I already tried contacting Salsa but they haven't gotten back to me.

M5x.8 is a very common metric bolt size. If you can't find the exact length you need, buy a longer one (say 50 mm if you need 40) and cut it down to the proper length.
