    Is titanium a good metal to be replacing the bolts with at the pivot points and shock mounts?

    I've been running a ti bolt kit on my 07 Ibis mojo frame with no issues whatsoever. I am 215 with all my gear on and am pretty harsh on my equipment.

    I've got a couple of racer friends with the kits on their ellsworth bikes with no issues.

    I worked with a dealer that sells Ellsworth. They are exact factory matches to the steel bolts.

    Wow, good luck with that... please post your findings...you can find Ti bolts from various companies on line, however, from a couple work projects we found that the motorcycle racing industry had some relatively odd pitch, diameter (including metric) and head profile Ti hardware. We found the really odd ball hardware from them. Good luck.
