I'm looking for button head, LIGHT green, alloy, 10mm water bottle bolts. The ones on Toronto Cycles are too dark. I'm trying to match this top cap and frame:

I buy my light green alloy bolts from Nano Here
and Robert at r2-bike Here Cost abit more but the quality is there.
They are a light green but I don't think it will exactly match your cap.
IMHO I don't think Toronto Cycles make good colour alloy bolts but they too make nice Ti-bolts.:thumbsup:

The top cap and the water bottle bolts are the finishing touches to tie in with the green on the frame. I happened to win the top cap the same week I got the frame and it's the perfect color. Since the bolts are on a white patch and next to the green strip it would be cool looking if I can find some low profile head bolts in the exact same color. If it was just about weight I'd ditch the top cap and fill the WB holes with silicone.

Found some the perfect color on Ebay. I've never gotten into doing the little stuff on a bike but on this one I'm kind of stoked on making it perfect.
