Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Cheapest Chainring Bolts

Looking for a link to cheap single chainring bolts. I can't seem to find anything under around $15, which seems a bit steep.

get steel bolts like eai has.
and keep in mind you'll be paying $5 or so for shipping
so you'll probably get a better deal at a bikeshop.

about 5 minutes at a grinding wheel is all it takes.

I tried taking the grind-wheel to the old double bolts, but it messed up the threads at the end. Plus, the heads of the bolts were kind of stripped anyway.
