    Ti bolts ????................

    Where can I get some titanium bolts? Besides my water bottle cage, where else is it safe to replace non-ti bolts with ti bolts? My bike is finally here, about a week more and I will have the remaining parts and I should be ready to go. Thx to all that gave me advice during the last few months. MKD

    SRP is one source.

    I'm not a fan of ti bolts used in load-bearing applications. The cost is relatively high and the weight saved is not substantial enough to justify the increased risk compared to steel, IMO.

    I do, however, use a ti bolt to hold my stem cap on. No load there plus it's a big bolt.

    Try SRP as last resort

    Pete from http://www.titaniumfasteners.com/sho...=info/plseread, aka redmist motor sports is also a cyclist and has the best deals on taperheads. Also, he just scored me some sweet m3 x8 bolts that for my dual xtr shifters that not only solved the stripping prob of the phillips head on the master cylinder, but gave the sweetest compliment to the look of the shifters. Good luck
