Hotay.....With the 100mm, you will probably end up having to stack some washers under the head to keep from bottoming out on the shank portion of the bolt. I had the four for my mount and I compared them, and saw at that length this would be necessary.. I don't know why they jump from 80mm to 100mm.....too darn big of a jump!!

Edit!! Just found some 90mm long at Mr. Metric (which is only about five miles from my home).... scroll to the bottom of the page.... . If you decide you want them, let me know and I'll go get some!!
