Any Idea What These Bolts Are

As per title. A mate has asked me to change a few bits and pieces on his bike, among them are these two rusty bolts.
There's nothing like this on my CAADX, so I have no clue what they are.
Preferably in something that won't rust, and available at Wiggle (everything else is in the basket) or possible size to purchase seperately

Yes, a chain is in the basket :)

    Just a couple of bolts holding the disc mount on by the looks of it. Take them off and measure them. Look like the same size as the ones holding the adapter, but only one way to be sure.
    Check if they are interchangeable.

    Just take one off and take it to the local dude who supplies the local garages with their nuts and bolts: he'll match it in 30 seconds and sell you 20 for a couple of Pounds, unlike Wiggle who will charge you a fortune.

    Then do the same for all the other bolts on the bike and claim pints of ale of gratitude.

    Looks like it has horizontally adjustable drop outs.

    Will have the same on the other side.

    If you don't want to be resetting the wheel in the right place only remove one bolt at a time.

    This, if you look slightly to the left of them you can see the adjuster barrel

    They'll be M6 Allen socket cap. Buy stainless from E-bay, way cheaper than most bike shops. You'll just need the length which you measure from the inside of the head to the end of the thread.
