    Help! I've lost my screws!

    Well, it would have sounded cooler to say I've lost my nuts, but alas, I have those!

    I have a GT Nomad, which when I bought it off a guy, had a pannier. I removed the rear pannier and crappy fenders to clean it up and take it in for a tune up. When I got home, I realized I've done lost all the bolts that go with the pannier! What size are these bolts typically in a frame? Is there a 'standard' size? Thanks ya'all!

    Probably 5mm diameter. Best bet is to hit the spare bolt box, find one that threads in, then get to a hardware store and buy more of the same thread in the correct length.
