I was going over my DH bike (Intense M6) to get ready for this weekend. I noticed the front bolt in the VPP link starting to come out. I treaded the bolt back in, but the E-clip is gone. I'm planning to ride this weekend, so I won't be able to get a new one by Saturday. So, anyone know what size the clip is and if I can get something that would work for the weekend at a hardware store, or if I should just ride without it.

E clips aren't very expensive, maybe go to the hardware store and buy a few different sizes? Or measure and just get the right one?

I used my e clip groove as a sawcut guide to run my e13 chain guide nice and tight to the frame.
Never had the bolts loosen and didn't loctite them.
Oh wait. Yeah I DID loctite them eventually. Blue 242 compound.
Make sure not to mix the grease and loctite... could cause unnecessary yelling and stuff.
But the new bottom link system (Santa Cruz design) is way nicer.
Does intense make it for the M6?
UPGRADE!
