U.S.E. Alien SeatPost Replacement Screws

I have a USE Alien carbon seat post with the older clamping system using the 2 small hex head screws. Does anyone know of a on line or local bike shop that carries these small screws. I called U.S.E. and they told me replacement hex head screws should be available at any of there retailers. Not the case, I tried Excel and a couple others with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Get the screw specs from USE. It should be a standard metric thread.

Assuming they have a standard metric thread, any decent hardware or big box home store should have a good assortment of metric bolts. You should be able to get replacements there at very low cost.
