Hi Guys,
To drop some more weight im wanting to change the stem bolts as they weigh 5g each, plus i want black ones.
Can i use the bolts from my Lightweight bottle cages, as they weigh 6g for all 4, will they be strong enough.??
Cheers

Use aluminium bolts on a stem and be a dead Pom.

Yep. many places to get them. Toronto cycles is always reliable, finding torx head will be hard though if you specifically wanted that.

Check these out: black Ti stem bolts. I have the same kit installed, 12 gramm in total (without the cap bolt).

How do the "color" hold?
I got black Ti stem set from bikehardest number of years ago. They went through many stems, 3 bikes and still looking fine.
But I though it's a time to "re-fresh" them. I think the ones I've got are powder coated (?).

Mine are anodized, I guess the color should hold much better. Something to consider is that material still reflects light like raw metal, so under certain conditions bolts don't look too black.
