For my hi-lo dropper. It needs quite a lot of torque and with my shitty Allen key set it’s starting to round out. Anyone know where to get a spare. Have phoned the UK distributor this am and they were bob-all help, just told me to try a hardware shop. I’ve got one of the best bolt shops near me and they’ve not seen anything like it, so I’m now getting stuck.
I think they’ve changed their head type, so here’s a pic.
No, if it was ‘just’ an M6 machine screw Margnor in Guildford would have had it.
After some concerted googling it seems to be a ‘shoulder bolt’ – with a portion of the bolt shaft of wider diam (and unthreaded) vs the threaded part, which then acts as the pivot for the angle adjustment of the saddle. Have been trawling through various suppliers trying to find the right dimensions but so far no joy – and then there’s the issue of what spec I need, given it needs to be torqued to around 20+ NM.
Hence why i wondered if there was any source of the correct spare part, other than the f’all help distributor.
Upgrade bike do the servicing on these posts, i have just got mine back from them and it is good as new. Try giving them a ring or popping them an email and see if they are able to help you out with a replacement bolt.
