In fond memory of the SRP days, a friend of mine is starting to deal in these little gems in another country and I am going to get some for personal use and thought I'd ask around and see if there's any take up from you lot as to whether it'd be worth starting to become a dealer on a small scale.

???

There are loads of sizes, M5, M6 etc and they even do anodised ones and in lovely colours including a blue/ green aqua that sounds like it will suit Yo's rather nicely.

Not sure on price yet as am in the very early stages of getting onvolved, but i think they aren't too bad (few quid each).

But look at those ones with holes in them! Four of those for the brake bosses please.

...and seiously light, and nice and 6/4 strong.

There are alloy ones too (think some of these pics are of alloy ones).

Didn't have a lot of time so quickly shot some pics on a T-shirt as a backdrop in the front garden, so apologies for pics etc.

Anyway, just wanted to see if there was any interest out there as if it's anywhere, it's gonna be us really isn't it?

do a search on ebay. i've been into ti & alu bolts for a long time (kinda steel bolt phobia, all my decent bikes are ti/alu bolted to the nines ;) & theres a lotta shops selling ti/alu bolts now. check out yer competition first & make sure you're either selling cheaper, or something vastly different to everyone else. www.tastynuts.com (not porno! ;) is on the priccy side, but they've been doing it for a while.

i love the drilled out ti crank bolts, shame no1s gonna see em!

hhmmm... i think i need...

1 x pair bottle cage
2 x pair vbrake bolts, extra long for brake booster
1 x pair crank bolts
2 x to fit a syncros stem (front flap thing)
2 x fit a syncros seatpost
6 x to fit judy crown
2 x M4 bolts
2 x M4 nuts
1 x M5 bolt
1 x M5 nut

I havent the foggiest what the sizes are as they are all still screwed into the bike!

all these in the lightest shape possible! :D the drilled out Ti look the nuts...

i think the rest of the bolts in the bike are aluminium...

yikes!! assuming things are about £4 each! thats nearly £80!! :shock:

mmm... just noticed 2 more bolts poking out the bottom of the judys... i wonder how big they are..... look like 5mm....
