I am installing my bb and am looking for some steel and some aluminum crank bolts. I'll use the steel ones to torque it and then replace them with the aluminum. Where can I get some state side?

Yep, and FRM (http://www.frmbike.com) also has a very nice product. It's also 14 grams a pair including a small rubber o-ring sealing the hole completely. I believe that Stan @ http://www.notubes.com carries FRM...

I found alau bolts at SRP but when asked over the phone about torque specs the guy said they were too busy to tell me them. Sooo I buy it and then instal it with really good intentions? I'll try Stan's
Stan said to ask Phil Woods the bb maker. No answer for two days.
I need the torque for the steel bolts.
I need the torque for the alloy bolts.
And I need the length for the alloy bolts. I remember a rule of thumb being that two X's the dia. of the bolt should be threaded in the hole with alloy bolts.
