I've just ordered a second hand tacx turbo but they send the wrong bolts to fix the unit to the frame (40mm instead of 50mm long). Anyone got any M6 50 bolts handy with a hex head? I tried screwfix as it is a standard thread size but their ones have too big a head for the head slot in the unit. I need two if anyone can help? Ta.

Try Boltbase (who sell through eBay). I've used them in the past for odd sizes and they've always had what's required.

Great shout, thanks. £1.60 and I'll have 3 spare!

Hickling's DIY on Wollaton Road in Beeston sell a vast selection of nuts and bolts individually or however many you need, worth a try if you are in the area.
