Titanium Gilles chain adjustor bolts

Gents,
Just thought I would share that I have contacted Ti64 about getting some of the pictured bolts made up from Titanium in sets of 2.
I will post up a price for a set when I hear back.
I have also shown a pic of one of these bolts with the head snapped off... This happened while a fellow member was tracking.
Post up if your interested in a set.
I am sure those running the Gilles adjustors will agree it is a good idea.


*UPDATE*

After hearing back from Pete, the cost of 2 bolts made from Ti is approx 15 per bolt...around $50ish CDN shipped I assume. Will know more after Pete gets the core sample.

I have the following people down for a set of 2 adjustor bolts in Ti.

- Myself
- Nobody
- Waldo

Hey bro, Pete at Ti64 has sent a reply to me.
He is asking for 15 per bolt, I am sending the one I have out to him today via Airmail to the U.K.

I have no problem with his price so I am going ahead.

Anybody wanting a set...
looking at 30 + shipping I believe.
