Just noticed that my Syncros seatpost I bought off here recently is missing the brass conical washer from one of the clamp bolts.

Does anyone have any replacements or a suitable alternative or is it a case of firing up my old lathe and attempting to make a reproduction?

Thanks

I seem to remember this coming up before and consensus was that just the rear bolt needed the washer......the front bolt head always sat flat against the clamp and doesn't need a washer......greater minds will be along shortly but have a close look at it..... :D

The early ones had two from memory, later had one; However mine has none and it clearly needs one. :cry:
