    Hope (Mono6ti) Ti rotor bolts?

    I've got Hope Mono6ti brakes and just for the looks I'd like to replace rotor bolts with golden Ti-bolts. The problem here is that I can't find proper bolts for this application. The head height is Very critical. The orginal bolts have 3mm head height and it cannot be any higher. 3.5mm is the maximum I think. With Chris King ISO 20mm hub and Sherman Breakout+ those rotor bolts are less that a 1mm away from the fork.

    www.tastynuts.com sells Shimano individual parts and those include "Titanium Brake Pad Mount Bolts". Those bolts look like they might just fit, but I have to be 100% sure before ordering such an expencive bolts.

    Has anyone information what to do and where to get proper bolts? And are those "Brake Pad" bolts suitable?

    The only "disc rotor specific" Ti bolts I have found are these http://hyperbolts.com/catalog/produc...337914b0c0c9d6

    www.racebolts.com offers Gold anodized Titanium bolts but not in a low profile 5x10 (the size you need for your rotor).

    The second picture is my setup with Gold Titanium ISO caliper mount bolts..

    Point out the "irony"

    He wants gold ROTOR bolts. I posted a picture of gold ISO caliper mount bolts.

    Read it again carefully.

    Thanks for the pics.

    So I think there isn't a possibility for golden ti-rotor bolts and I'm done with them.
    I guess I'll have to paint them golden since I'm exchanging every possible bolt to ti-gold (not the critical ones of cource).

    Btw, those caliper mounting bolts look sweet!
