    Hardwear

    I am looking for replacement bolts for Avid Ultimate brake lever clamps. I searched bike shops and hardwear stores with negative results. They have the bolts in steel but not aluminum. Are there any places that would stock aluminum hardwear for any reason?

    I don't know in US, but here in Europe there are enough bikeshops where you can order almost every bolt in Ti and Al, and every color. That must be possible at the other side of the water to I think?? Maybe try some ebay? Srp bolts?
    Syntace titanium bolts is possible?
    And try at shops that sell MX bikes, they use a lot of aluminium bolts to!

    My LBS keeps bolts in Ti and Al in most sizes. There aren't many clamp bolts that are proprietary, so it shouldn't be tough to find. Try some other bike shops, ones that might have a larger repair center.
