The guy at redmist fasteners has been very helpful to me and the prices seem OK, but i didn't really shop around.

Don't forget the WW FAQ (see above). It lists a few bolt suppliers.

I ordered from redmist twice now.

Great service and their prices were great too.

I'm based in the UK.

this sounds cool.. I've been looking to upgrade the bolts in my FRM webstem for a while now to titanium.. heard a few stories about the ones supplied (aluminium i think) breaking so I don't mind a miniscule weight penalty to prevent me hitting the deck and stopping myself with my face :shock:

what other bolts on my bike can be lightened? e.g. steel to aluminium or Ti?? alrady got alu bottle boss bolts..

thanks, doozer :mrgreen:

When I go to redmist I can't get a pic of the product. I like to see what I'm getting. Am I doing something wrong? Racebolts LLC has pics. Is thier service decent?

I just bought some stuff from SRP and found the service not so good. All I wanted was two alloy crank bolts but they have a minimum order of $20. Then they charged me something like $14 to ship it to me in a bubble wrap envelope. $ 35 for two alloy bolts and I live in the US!

I've experienced the same thing. They won't even answer their emails.

I try to use Cambria bike for SRP bolts.

Tiso make some very light bolts. I use their entire range(stem, h/bar, headset cap, crankset, chainring etc.)

They are of very high quality, and don't rust (unlike my Record one's). They are also very cheap.
