I have an old Look ergostem, which came to me with the wrong bolt and bung (bolt too long). This fails to secure the stem in the steerer, so I'm looking for a replacement.


Something like the above, but around 10cm long, with 4cm of thread, also including the bung as there doesn't seem to be a standard threading for these things.

Any help would be really appreciated, been searching google for one for a while with no luck, and the closest I've found is on eBay and 2 cm too long.

You could try giving this shop a ring. They specialize in old bike/bike parts ... 6aff6c/ml/

Why not take it to a machine shop and ask them to put some more thread on it. It will be M10, but may be a fine thread, although the picture looks a standard thread. 10 minute job with the right tools
