are you intending to use them to secure the brakes to the frame.

now i love my ano, but would not use an alloy bolt for that purpose as they are not strong enough, they are gonna snap or shear just when you need them most :shock: :shock: :shock:

i have seen them used to hold the cable and are ok for that

think they're ok on the rear, it's the front pushes them out... not that they've ever sheared on me like. ps, same size can be chopped down and used to secure shifter clamps 8)

I use aluminum bolts on rear v-brakes, have done it for years without problems. They do come loose after a while, just check them every few rides. Aluminum locknuts to hold the pads on too, nice and light plus cheap!
