Hi,

I've been unable to identify what this is - is it classified as a female bolt? A shouldered nut? What is this?
There's a female/threaded area, the other side has a metric hex head.
...and of course not knowing its industry title, I have been unable to find a Titanium equivalent.
The one in hand is steel.
Which is heavy. :evil:

If you know where I can find it in Titanium, please share?

It's a nut. And as with all nuts, it's female.

Okay, what type of nut?
This isn't a barrel nut.
And it's not even in the same categories of normal nuts (locking or otherwise)

I looked there first, did not see it listed. E-mailed Toronto Cycles, no response yet...

I also looked at McMaster-Carr, not listed there at all (in any material).

I also looked at ProBolt, same result.

A) What does it weigh?
B) how much saving do you expect with a titanium version?

I know this is WW, but sometimes you need to decide it's not worth it.

Out of curiosity, what component is this used with?

I've been trying to figure out what it's called using Google images.

http://www.directindustry.com/industria ... 01929.html

I seem to be getting closer using the terms "sleeve nut" or "rivet nut".

OOoo Really close! But way, way too big.

The size I'm looking at:
m5 female thread & 6mm head

It may be called a rivet nut, from your previous link... but it's a bit different than most rivet nuts I'm looking at.

To answer your previous questions:

A) 3.5g
B) 1.7g, expected.

I think it's worth it.... I may have a problem. :lol:

It's used on two different integrated handlebars I recently purchased. One of them is going on a commuter build, the other going on a friend's build (the bike is a gift). I have a feeling I'll be seeing these nuts in the future, just a premonition, which is why I want to find out where I can find Ti versions.

If it's on a handlebar it'll only see 5 Nm and you should use aluminum.

Looks like a nut from a 3T ARX LTD stem but in silver. Maybe a small part from 3T?

That just might be it! I'll get in touch with 3T and see where I can source the nut portion of the package, I have no need for their other bolts.
Thanks juanmoretime!
