Some say they are an M11 Ribe, and some say they're T55 Torx :?

I don't know, I never took the seat out of my Connect :P

I bought the M11 ribe and it's too big to fit. Might try a T55 next unless someone can confirm so I don't keep spending cash :lol:

If I could, I would go and check for you, but the Connect was sold back in 2018 :(

That sounds more like it tbh. I was considering getting the t50 since the M11 was too big. Cheers bud!

The 2020 gets an M10 torque bolt the length not sure about cause we've not yet taken these bolts out ourselves. But we will soon as we're installing some spacers to lift and tilt the seat forward approx 1-2 inches.
