Is it safe to replace full sus pivots and linkages with Ti ones? If so, does anyone know who can supply? I can get everythnig else on the bike but have struggled when trying to find larger threads and patterns.
I see no problem replacing them if you check the torsional properties are the same or better than what you’re replacing.
Ti bolts is Superstar components. http://www.tastynuts.com/ is where I get mine from.
I ordered some Ti Bolts from Superstar, the first ones I received were OK (caliper bolts), I then ordered some disc bolts and a Hope Mini lever kit, the quality was appalling, sent the lot back and got a refund.
suspension pivot bolts shouldn’t be under heavy load if it’s a decent frame design so it should be fine for most bikes. I wouldn’t be willing to pay but if i was given them i’d have no problem using them.
Yeah – mine did too. Never had it happen from other suppliers. Really poor show all round. And the disc brake mounts were too long – well they were for all the frames I tried them on. Hey ho. Nothing ventured etc.
