    I use eBay for this sort of thing, there are so many suppliers. You may need to include the thread size and length to find suitable bolts as you don't need bike specific bolts.

    Any hardware store will have black hex headed bolts. They're m5x0.8 sized.

    My local ace hardware has a surprisingly large selection. I bought some for brakes recently. Home Depot is alright too.

    Those are titanium oxide coated carbon steel. Don't get them wet, they rust after a bit. Never mind, they also rust if you don't get them wet.

    Stainless bolts can be anodized, but most have a DLC coating as it's cheaper. It's a good finish, no worries there. Pro-bolt carries stainless in a few colors, but shipping always bumped the price close to titanium bolts from Toronto Cycles, so I've got about $40 in Ti bolts on each of my bikes.

    Not a weight weenie, just hate rusting bolts.

    Here are some: M5 A2 Stainless Steel Socket Cap Head Machine Screw in GWR Colourfast

    Shipping to North America is not cheap though.

    I saw those black Ti bolts on Toronto Cycles yesterday. Apparently you can't anodize Ti black using the same simple technique as for other colors. So disappoint.

    Yep, that's a good find. I checked Grainger and didn't see them, but forgot about McMaster Carr.

    Hey yall be careful. Prob ok w ss bolts......but......ss nuts & bolts can gaul. Meaning they can seize then break in the nut. I've seen it on some railings I built. They make a reverse threadlock spray for ss hardware. But a ss bolt into a different metal thread should be ok. Well not sure about aluminum/ss interaction, or what type of metal inserts in carbon frames are made of.
