Does anyone know if there are Torx replacement bolts available for Ritchey WCS stems (non C260)?
SJS Cycles has allen ones in Ti, but no Torx. The thing about WCS bolts is that they have a spherical washer, so you can't just use off-the-peg ones.
I have been doing some tinkering with different forks, so mine are on the verge of being rounded out, quite scary.

Just ask Ritchey for replacement bolts (hex). Mine were rounded as well and Ritchey was great about sending me replacement bolts.

Cool, thanks.
Alternatively, could one use lower tier (Pro/Comp?) steel bolts, with the spherical washer taken from my current WCS bolts?

As someone stated above, email Ritchey, they have sent them to me for free in the past.

Ritchey tells me to buy them from http://ritchey.ch/
Wondering if the replacements will be more durable.
