Be careful when fitting titanium bolts.
If you overdo it, bike will float off....you'll need to tether it down.

I have both Racebolt and Pro-bolt. Both have Ebay shops.

I had another binge a month or 2 ago.

Incidentally, Ti and aluminium corrode like a b*****

What are others using as an anti seize?






Question everything.

You get a electrolytic reaction between dissimilar metals which speeds up corrosion so a coating like copper slip is needed as a barrier.
