    Changing the saddle on my Trek Pilot

    I purchased a Terry Fly saddle for me new Trek Pilot, but when I went to put it on I realized that a Torx bolt will need to be removed to get the old saddle off(either that, or none of my 1000 Allen wrenches fit.)

    Does anyone know what size torx wrench I need to get this thing off, or am I destined to go to Sears and buy a set of the stupid things?

    should be a 6 mm allen i believe. maybe a 7 or 8. Never seen a torx headed bolt on a seat post saddle mount.

    You're absolutely right. Once I actually put the bike in a good position to get at the screw, I realized my mistake. A lot of elbow grease later, I got the new saddle on. Thanks!
