The guy at redmist fasteners has been very helpful to me and the prices seem OK, but i didn't really shop around.

Don't forget the WW FAQ (see above). It lists a few bolt suppliers.

I'm based in the UK.

this sounds cool.. I've been looking to upgrade the bolts in my FRM webstem for a while now to titanium.. heard a few stories about the ones supplied (aluminium i think) breaking so I don't mind a miniscule weight penalty to prevent me hitting the deck and stopping myself with my face :shock:

what other bolts on my bike can be lightened? e.g. steel to aluminium or Ti?? alrady got alu bottle boss bolts..

thanks, doozer :mrgreen:

When I go to redmist I can't get a pic of the product. I like to see what I'm getting. Am I doing something wrong? Racebolts LLC has pics. Is thier service decent?

yes this is why i shop at racebolts.com -----pictures! Redmist take more pictures, how hard is that?

I've ordered from racebolts about 4 times in the last 2 months--very happy customer.

I just bought some stuff from SRP and found the service not so good. All I wanted was two alloy crank bolts but they have a minimum order of $20. Then they charged me something like $14 to ship it to me in a bubble wrap envelope. $ 35 for two alloy bolts and I live in the US!

I've experienced the same thing. They won't even answer their emails.

I try to use Cambria bike for SRP bolts.

Tiso make some very light bolts. I use their entire range(stem, h/bar, headset cap, crankset, chainring etc.)

They are of very high quality, and don't rust (unlike my Record one's). They are also very cheap.
