it’s always fun to ‘improve’ a bike for little money. it’s usually also quick and easy. the downside: it usually also does next to nothing.

like these great titanium bolts from china. $2 each, so not really a massive expense. they also weigh 40% less than the original steel bolts.

which is great until you consider that the steel bolts weigh 7g each … oh well, that’s why we call it bling. looks great, does (next to) nothing.

i hope they’ll at least not rust. i hope.
