2015 Cervelo S5 seatpost bolt help
Quote | Reply
I recently bought and built up a 2015 S5, build went great, all is really good except the bolt that holds the saddle clamp assembly. I was trying to get it to snug up, and rounded the bolt so now I can't tighten it enough to keep the saddle from tilting when I move my weight around. Anyone know a good spot to order a spare (or maybe a few, as it seems like this is a very tough spot to get enough torque without stripping it out like I did)? I'd love to be able to run down to home depot or something to find a replacement and not have to wait on shipping, but any help would be great.

Thanks

Go to Lowe's. Home Depot was cancelled.

Allen keys are in good shape. I think it was less than ideal when I got the frame, I think I found an online replacement, but would love to find a steel one that I don't have to worry about babying. This bolt needs to be torqued down really hard to get it to hold setting.

What material is the online replacement made of?
