The 2010 Tricross Sport needs the following standards met to have a compatible group set. 68mm BSA (British Standard) threaded bottom bracket. 34.9mm top clamp, bottom pull front derailleur Any SRAM or SHIMANO Road or Cyclocross group set will work if it meets these standards.

It looks to me like you just lost the nut. A stainless steel nut and washer or a stainless steel nylock nut would work best for this application. These options would help prevent the nut from coming loose and falling off again. You could also try using threadlock to help secure the nut as well.

You need Leather washers in between the metal fender and frame. a washer and locking nut to secure the fixing bolt. For detailed instructions on metal fender install see the detailed Velo Oranges fender manual.
