Upgrading my Spooky's...

I wonder if it's possible to upgrade my carbon Spooky cantilevers with titanium hardware. Does somebody know where to get the required nuts and bolts?

Thanks in advance,
Timo

why ti? want something lighter? go aluminum. I'm using Al bolts to mount my spookys onto the frame/fork. Aluminum nuts that hold on the pads as well.

The only place that ti needs to be is the seatpost binder, stem, and maybe derailleur clamp bolts. everything else Al.

Go to racebolts.com thats where ive gotten a LOT of bolts from, quick service, decent prices, pictures.

Why use aluminium.
On the rearbrake you can use carbon !!
They can also be used for bottle cages, and the derailleurs.
That's wheightsaving !!

Timo : There are several places. You need a standard M6 x 30 (I think)
Try Bike Tuning Parts . I know they have stuff you would like.
