    Broken stem bolt

    I was installing a stem and broke one fo the Titanium bolts that holds the stem onto the steering tube. I am going to replace the bolt....what can I buy that is comparable to a Ti bolt? I don't care about the extra weight.

    Get rid of all your Ti (and alloy for that matter) bolts on your bike and replace them with steel.

    it can happen - even w/ steel sometimes - bad smelt?
    i dunno -
    steel is THE way to go for bolts tho - good tensile strength and just enough elasticity IMO
