    Ti bolts save 6 grams. Changed them to Ti today since the steel ones were rusting.

    M4x15.

    The steel bolts have odd dome washers on them. They are captured, so you can't move them to the Ti bolts. Hopefully the square bolt heads in rounded sockets don't cause an issue (doubt they will, have run square headed bolts in seatposts that previously had dome washers without issue).

    Loosened up after first minute of riding, tightened, and good from there. Drops, etc, no issues.
