    Ti bolts for Ritchey 4-Axis stem

    Any know if these exist and if so where I can get some? Or maybe the stem already comes with them and I'm not aware of it? I know the carbon version does so maybe those can be used?

    I checked the Ritchey site and it doesn't meantion Ti bolts for the non carbon 4-Axis but its does for the carbon. That makes me assume that it doesnt come with ti bolts.

    I have fitted Ti bolts in my 4-axis. Some syntace bolts with a tapered head with 16mm of thread, a bit shorter than the original stainless ones, but I think it's enough, I don't use washers with them so that also saves like 1mm of thread. I'm riding already almost 2 years with this stem with ti bolts and it's working perfect!

    I can't find tapered Ti M5x18 bolts anywhere online. Am I that dumb?

    Try to order them from Syntace, high quality bolts. Or search on google for titanium bolts or something like that. It shouldn't be such a problem to find any!

    I got the bolts now I need to know if it's ok to use them without washers cause I can't get the stock washers off the stock bolts.

    I am using it for 1,5 years now and haven't used any washers with it because... I couldn't get them off the stock bolts, and the titanium bolts are going to be to short in my case when I use washers.
    I don't believe that it will be any problem!
