I'm interested in replacing some of the stock bolts on my bike with Ti. Anyone have a good source? Located in or easy shipping to the US is a plus.

I never took drugs to improve my performance at any time. I will be willing to stick my finger into a polygraph test if anyone with big media pull wants to take issue. If you buy a signed poster now it will not be tarnished later. --Graeme Obree

A little reading, as follow-on to eric's heads-up post, can go a long way.

That can't be a random coincidence.

they're related (cousins or brothers if i recall). the owner of one of 'em told me the exact relationship once--he referred me to the other store for a part that he didn't have in stock at the moment, mentioned to try his [cousin's/brother's] shop.

i've always had terrific service from both places. ordered a few random ti bits a few weeks back and he actually measured the width of the ti washer that i needed so as to make sure it would fit my application.

I just went with Pro-Bolt to replace the bow-tie bolts on my Speedplays. Shipping was a bit pricey: total was $20/10 bolts, which is still cheap on a $/gram basis.
