    disc rotor bolts - ti weight savings?

    I've been debating getting some ti bolts for my rotors and was wondering how much weight savings I should expect. I was looking at this http://hyperbolts.com/catalog/produc...2cd6d4a67f68a4

    It claims 1.2g for each bolt. What do normal bolts weigh? Is there a cheaper place to buy these? I tried to look at redmist but don't know what the specs mean. Thanks.

    I have a set of Magura Marta SLs and here is what I saved:

    12 ti rotor bolts (M5 x 12mm): saved 10g
    4 ti caliper bolts (M6 x 17mm): saved 10g
    2 ti lever bolts (M5 x 15mm): saved 4g

    on the lever bolts....

    if you are talking about the clamp bolt, that doesn't see enough stress to warant Ti. i would use an aluminum bolt there and save money and weight. aluminum bolts are not good for high stress applications (i have seen MANY heads shear off of Al bolts) but if you can get away with using them somewhere like bar clamps and bottle cages, they can save serious weight.
