Hey guys, does anyone know if there's a 'less expensive' alternative to the Competitive Cyclist titanium bolt kit for the Racer X? Seems like $125 for 5 bolts is just so steep.

$125 Ti bolt kit link

Doing a quick search I found these two places:
SRP and Pro-Bolt

but I'm unsure of the sizes I would need.

Is there an online retailer for to pickup a whole pivot bolt replacement kit that's not titanium? I mean all the 8 bolts that are holding the rear triangle/shock. I've had problems in the past trying to acquire parts like this for other manufacturers and would love to get some spares if they're reasonably priced.

Thanks!

Looking at the RX specs and what's available, could someone who ordered confirm this please?

Rear Shock bolt = M8x55 SHCS x1
Front Shock Bolt = M6x45 SHCS x1 (M6 Nylok Nut x1, M6 washer x1)
Horst Bolts = M6x25 FHCS x2
Rocker Bolts = M8x17 BHCS

* 1ea.- Titanium Taper Socket Head M8X55
* 1ea.- Titanium Taper Socket Head M6X45
* 1ea.- Titanium Hex Flange Lock Nut M6X1.0
* 1ea.- Titanium Washer M6 (6-4, grade 5, OD=13.55mm,thickness 0.85)
* 2ea - Titanium Countersunk Screw M6X25
* 4ea.- Honda Ti Rear Disc Rotor Bolt M8x17, shoulder 5mm, 90105-MV9-003

Total: $68.90

Thanks!

Edit: Added links on parts
Edit2: On closer inspection, there are 4 rocker bolts and the countersunk ones are for the rear chainstay

Not sure how the other "kit" is only 5 bolts when there are way more than that. Am I missing something here?

The countersunk screws from Racebolts for the horst link have too shallow of a head to adequately torque with a hex wrench. In other words, I returned them because they would have stripped out if I'd tightened them.
