I have bought plenty from China. Use aliexpress app and make sure they have reviews. Good quality no issues for my ec90 stem and bottle cages

On a bike with R9150 parts, already have Ti stem bolts and lightweight AL cage bolts, is there any low hanging fruit left?

Can't come up with much, maybe the seatpost bolts.

I bought M5x18mm on ebay from ecycling_chen over the summer. Don't remember why I chose from there, but all is good...6 of them for $12.
