Here is a vendor that contacted me, asked for a link! Not sure how they fare in variety and pricing.

(Paul, I know you have some sources...add them!)

Actually, I can usually find the metric hardware I need from local auto parts stores (NAPA, Schucks, Auto Zone, etc.) and hardware stores (Home Depot, Lowes, or even the more Mom & Pop Ace/True Value outfits). It's a lot easier to find metric stuff nowadays than it was back in 1970! If I have a hard time locating what I need then I go to a fastener specialty store. We have several of them around here, with the biggest being a PNW chain called Tacoma Screw.

I can spend a day going to every Lowes and Home Depot, looking for the right bolt/nut. Usually what I'm looking for is gone, or in the wrong drawer.
There may be a good local non-chain hardware place in town, haven't found it. Since most of my fastener hunting is done on weekends, it kind of cuts out the real fastener supply houses.
I imagine if you were doing some serious bike rebuilding, it could be worth messing with an online place.

What are they offering, Pete. If they'll kick in for the host fees to help cover the annual hosting bill, through advertising. Put'em on the parts page at BanditAlley.com I'm sure somebody might find a use or at least browse the site. Two things caught my eye at the site: one they have a min order of $20, and two I couldn't find allen bolts. So, I don't know...

Paul, apparently that website you provided the link for has been cancelled.
