    New question here. Firebird bolts

    The bolts on my rocker are starting to show signs of wear (and the use of worn out Allen keys). How/where can I get replacements in Canada (Interior Okanagan to be specific). I don't have a LBS that deals with Pivot (or On The Edge) so anytime I need something, they have to try to track it down and it usually ends up costing more than it should.
    Does Pivot stock any of the small hardware or would I have some luck if I tried every single industrial fastener place around. The town I live in doesn't have anything like this so I will be driving all over the place trying to source them.

    Definately use a new wrench with them - I've stripped out a tight one even with a new wrench before.

    I have tried with bolt/fastener places in Calgary, and it was a no go. It is because of the machined bolts Pivot uses, cant find them at shops (as you dont want threads rubbing on the bushings... could try Granger or similar, but even then, might not have the best of luck. They helped me out in a jam when i had a bolt back out, and sent one up in short time so i could ride! Awesome Pivot support! woot woot

    We usually can come up with something if you need it. Using the originally specced hardware is always the best choice (I've learned that the hard way ).
