Sometime ago I purchased a pair of Perfomance Brand Mountain bike shoes. Last week I tried to install cleats on the shoes. The bolts that came with the pedals are too short for the shoes. I called Perfomance and was informed that those shoes require longer bolts. Are these bolts readily available?

Thanks
Try your local hardware storeKerry Irons

Any good hardware store will have the metric threaded bolts in the right length, with possibly your choice of head styles. Cleat bolts are a common size.

If I'm not mistaken the 10-32 x 3/4 will solve your problem. If u can't find them I have some lying around. Good luck!!!

Thanks for the information. I would appreciate it however if you would explain what the numbers mean.

Thanks

10 is a diameter descriptor, not related to wire gages, but a standard unto screws only. In this case 10 = ~.190" outside diameter aka major diameter.
32 is threads per inch.
3/4 = overall length, usually not including head length.

I spoke to Performace and they sent me the longer bolts.
By the way, if the bolts are metric, shouldn't the measurements be metric?
