    I use both [different bikes]. Honestly, I don't think it matters. Alloy ones aren't quite as strong, but they don't rust. I've had two bolts fail on me in 20 years. Both were alloy, but I hadn't tightened them enough and they were stressed in a way they weren't designed to be stressed in, so... I've busted more chains and bent more chainrings in that time...

    I like the Truvativ dual hex head in steel. The only one I've had break on me is one out of five that I used everyday all winter long and it was during a reinstall. It's pretty much all I use now.
