Recommend me some gold chainring bolts that don't suck
i put some origin8 chainring bolts on my bike to dress it up. All's well, even got the drivetrain a little smoother with the Sheldon Brown "tap the chain" method. Tighten everything up, great, then i get a creak in a week or so. Go to tighten the loose bolt and the HEAD SNAPPED OFF in two pcs and shot across the room. And I am not talking about gorilla torque here. So back on with the stock bolts, then.
So this is a totally silly dressup part, but are there any gold colored bolts you can recommend?
Oh, and this is for a stock 2012 kilo crankset (no brand marking i can see on it).
