 Post subject: Recessed seat lug bolt.

The seat lug bolt on my Daccordi snapped on Sunday and a quick search of the Internet didn't throw up any sources for a replacement. I've put on a normal Campag one for now - the type with approx 13mm diameter bolt heads but the seat lug recess is only 10mm diameter.

Does anyone know where I can get the pukka item?

Cheers,
Mark.

Here's the offending seat lug and broken bolt. I've included the standard Campag one for comparison. The Campag one has already chipped the paint off the lug so I really do want to find a proper replacement.

I recently got one of these from my LBS, who took a while to find it for me, although they're probably available on the internet. I'll check the diameter of mine. what's the outside diameter of the flange on your broken bolt? and what's the total length? does it have anything stamped on it?

The flange diameter is 10mm and overall length approximately 30mm.

I'll pop into the bike shop near work (the famous Woodrups where they build frames) if I get a chance tomorrow and ask there.

OK. I had no chance to measure mine today, but I'm pretty sure they're still available.

just did a quick google, sjs have one that looks like it might be the right size:

send them an email and ask for the dimensions!

Hi Andy,
I was just on their site as well as Spa Cycles! I reckon the SJS one is the same as the Campag, the flange looks much bigger than the body.
I'll see what Woodrups say tomorrow.
Mark.
