Hi guys
My stock bolts are caat iron i think - as heavy as the moon, and totally rusted up - and they also stick out a great deal, occasionally catching /cutting my knees (not sure how actually... But they do!)
I've been looking but can't find where to buy some titanium (or alloy) replacement bolts.. Saw a couple of guys on here mention them, but no supplier, I think.. Any ideas please? Cheers

The ones you have now are probably regular steel. You could replace them with titanium.
Aluminum is not a good choice for stem bolts.

Most stems are made by just a few companies. Likely m5 x .8 pitch x 16-20mm Stainless or Ti.

Nice one guys. I thought they were much more specific re: threads

Toronto Cycles. If they don't have the Ti hardware you're looking for, you probably didn't need it in the first place.
