They used to be easy to find but the only ones I've found are from the States with a silly amount of shipping. Anyone know of somewhere closer to home (UK)? Thanks.

Check out raceti.com if you haven't already. They are UK based and have a pretty good selection. I've bought various bolts and washers from them over the years and always been happy.

They’re getting scarce: one here but a bit steep.

Maybe we should approach someone like raceti and get a few made up? Not sure how big a batch would be needed to be cost effective.

It says in their FAQ's it's between 50-100 minimum for specials. Not sure that many would be interested.

The ebay one isn't a bad price but I need a longer one for my velo orange stem, total height is 190mm.

Looks like mine is 190mm from the specs so pretty long. Yours are 150 and 160's? Sounds like you'll have takers though.
