not strictly true,they were designed for expensive alloy frames with non replaceable dropouts(ARC's etc) would snap the bolt instead of bend the dropout :wink:

ernestrome,
It's for the quill bolt, used to have a Ti bolt there before see no problem it it.
Had Ti bolts on the brake bosses for year, still perfect. Just don't buy cheap no-name stuff.. if it's good enough for a high end motorbikes it'll be fine for my bike :D

stew-b, was jesting a bit there, still would never use one though.
