    Alternator bolt kit?
    I don't mind dirt caked on my Selma Ti SS, but I don't like seeing rusty bolt heads in the Alternator dropout.

    Any ideas if there is a stainless or titanium bolt kit available anywhere?
    Would Ti even be a good material for this?

    Paragon Machine Works has Ti and stainless bolt kits for sliding dropouts. You might check with them to see if they have bolts of the right size and threading.

    Here is the Alternator bolt list:

    4. Swing plate fixing bolt (2), M8 x 1.25, 16mm
    5. Upper pivot bolt (driveside), M6 x 1.0 w/washer, 16mm
    6. Nylock nut (driveside), M6 x 1.0
    7. Upper pivot bolt (non-driveside), M6 x 1.0 w/washer, 22mm
    8. Set screw (2), M4 x 0.7, 18mm


    Paragon just offers #4.

    For now, a harder search for these isn't worth it to me.

    Though if Salsa offered a complete Ti bolt kit, I'd probably buy it.... wink wink

    I also have a Ti Selma and am replacing all the steel bolts with Ti. There are several listings for Ti bolts on ebay, so just type in the above specifications and "titanium bolt" and you should have several options. You'll have to do some digging, but all the more gratifying it'll be once your bike is all tricked out.

    The UK distributer has this listed in it's Salsa frame spares category.

    edit to add: seems these are not Ti bolts, just bolts for Ti frames only.:madman:
