I have a Time carbon stem. The other day when I was tightening the one of the screws that adjusts tension on the fork, the screw broke in half Time is not a US company, and the stem is at least 3-4 years old. I'm not to sure what do, since it looks like a pretty unusual screw. Any thoughts?

This is the stem I have:

if you can't tease it out, use a screw extractor to remove the broken bit

take out the good bolt, check it, measure it, it'll probably be m5, order a couple of new ones - it's a stem bolt, i'd go for high tensile steel just for margin, but standard will probably be ok too

Pretty much anywhere, I usually use Toronto Cycles for no particular reason. Just make sure to measure the width and length.

What's nonstandard about them? Looks exactly like a narrow head M5.

If you really want to know, take the stem down to your local hardware store and try a couple of different bolts. Or your LBS and ask them to try an M5 in it.

TIME don't make screws, they got it from a screws manufacturer. So you still can find it in this world. If not Pls help to SCREW them for making life challenging for us.

I would check the stem and fork, you probably overtightened the screw
