Pro-Bolt of Gloucestershire (01684-851940) also worth a look;

They do quite a bit of bike-specific stuff in both aluminium and titanium:

I’ve used the sister company Superstar components and they are very good, so I would give these a go....

+1 for www.tibolts.co.uk

Excellent range, service and prices.

SRP, I believe, are now out of business. I tried to buy a V brake kit from them earlier this year and didn't hear a word from them, the bolts never arrived and I spent a fun-packed month trying to get my cash back off them!!

I'm not sure SRP is out of business. I did receive an order earlier this year, and further communication by email more recently, but the service is flaky to say the least. That's why I'm looking closer to home for a more reliable supplier.

tasynuts.com may have what I'm looking for.

Thanks everyone.
