Good to know. I have been hesitant to use them in the past as it looks like their website has not been updated in a while, so I appreciate your vote of confidence. They have a great selection of stuff.

I've bought from aliexpress. I know it's a risk, especially the ones on the stem. But I haven't had any problems at all. And they have seen a lot of stress. I'm a big guy.

As UpFromOne said, Toronto Cycles stopped taking orders on March 29.

FWIW, I respectfully disagree with Orbital that Toronto Cycles offers great customer service. I'd call their customer service OK at best. Shipping is often slow, and response times to emailed questions have been really hit-or-miss IME. Their stated policies are written in a tone that's borderline hostile, and Toronto Cycles seems to think basic order/package tracking is an outrageous luxury. Plus, the site is a hot mess—it's so disorganized, circular and ambiguous that it's almost impressive.

That said, I've always received what I ordered and the products have always been as advertised. Plus, TC has a large, reasonably-priced catalog of parts that are nearly impossible to find elsewhere. I'm glad TC exists and I hope they resume operations soon. It would be nice if they addressed the things I mentioned, but I don't think they ever will. I'll order from them again anyway.

So I'd call the customer service OK, but not great. I get the impression that the owner is a slightly cranky curmudgeon, but an honest and competent one. Like I said, I'm looking forward to placing my next order.

I actually do agree with all this, LOL.

I had an instance where I was sent something incorrectly and was sent the correct piece no questions asked. He wasn’t happy about it but he did make it right.

I've never used them, but https://www.probolt-usa.com looks to be good. The issue is that since they're not cycling specific, you have to know your size/style. But they also offer aluminum fasteners as well so if you have an inventory of all of the bolts you need, you can pick and choose which can be aluminum and which need to be titanium and get everything in one order.

Most everything can come in any anodized finish as well.

Not cheap though.
