When building a bike with 12s Force AXS, SRAM/Quarq powermeter, 2x with oval Rotor chainrings, I missed that the supplied bolts with covers (from SRAM/Quarq) where for 1x (i.e. too short and they actually came off during a recent 1600k ultra).

The bolts in question are these: https://www.bike-discount.de/en/sram-red-chainring-bolts

In the past, I've ridden a lot of bikes with oval chainrings 2x from various brands together with Shimano Di2, and bolts with covers for Ultegra/Dura-Ace 2x are to be found from Shimano, absoluteBLACK, Rotor, et al.

I can't seem to find anything for the SRAM/Quarq spindle. Are there any available? Or should I just go for standard (ugly) chainring bolts?

The official answer is you use regular chainring bolts and sleeve nuts for 2x (per the user manual) for the power spider, and the part number (11.6918.004.000) for them is in the spare parts catalog.

I have no idea whether there's an aftermarket setup for 2x that gives the same look as the covers.
