You can get bolts from a few places: Jersey Cycles, Toronto Cycles, Racebolts. Some more here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/faq.p ... _buy_bolts

Nylon - its plastic. Very apparent by looking at it.

Steel vs Ti: Use a magnet. You can generally tell by feel as well, as steel is significantly more dense.

Ti Vs aluminum: Aluminum generally is quite a bit softer, and is a different color. I don't think its very common to find stock though. Perhaps water bottle screws.

Buy a time frame and you get carbon fiber water bottle screw for free. I kept them when I sold the Time and they have served me on two different bikes now.

I cant recall if nylon or carbon is lighter. Bottom line- within a 1gram. Both are lighter than ti or aluminum .Image
