I get very fed up of seeing the poor quality bolts that are oft supplied to me so any ideas where I can get some decent ones? even coloured/anodized would do, cheers.

Found 'aboltfromtheblue' on ebay have a good selection of A2 (Marine grade stainless steel). Typically about £1 for a pack of 10 bolts. Pleased with mine so far (bought about £10 worth of various sizes to suit a bike).

I get mine from a shop in Exeter - absolutely no use to anyone unless you live there I suppose...
