Under BB guide thread size?

I bought an under BB cable guide from Nova Cycles, but have no idea what size tap to use for the bolt. Any ideas?

you could just Pop-rivet it on. Given, repaint would be the only reason to remove it.

Thanks again for the help. I got a Park TAP-8 and used a 5/32" bit to drill the hole. Was easy as cake and only took a few minutes. This may be the only EighthInch Scrambler with a front derailer cable guide.

What are you doing to mount a rear derailleur?

It's going to be a dinglespeed, so I'm using a Paul Melvin tensioner instead of a rear derailer. I found a DMR chain tug with built-in hanger for it to mount to.
