Linkage bolts?

Postby ry1978 » Tue Jan 01, 2013 23:39 pm

Hi, I'm replacing the bearings in the rear suspension of my stumpjumper FSR120 (2005-6 I think). It looks like the previous owner has rounded one of the allen bolts at the drop out linkage. I'm planning on cutting a slot to get a screwdriver in but my question is if the bolt becomes un-usable after removing can I get a replacement?

Talk to a bolt specialist or your local Spesh dealer.

Normally yes you can.
