Mavic Pro Road - Cleat screw length

Jul 16, 2010

I bought the last pair of Mavic Pro Road shoes at my local shop but there were only 5 short screws (supplied with the shoe) instead of 6. I have used my normal look screws which are longer and don't seem to be causing any issues. Has anyone had experience of this, I don't want to find on my next cleat change I have stripped the thread or done any damage.

Same problem with SIDI shoes and Shimano cleats the screws are not long enough.

Easy to get longer screws form a industrial fastener supply shop I got 25 for $5.
