Can't tighten OR loosen my stem/bar bolt.
I have an old Peugeot with a pinch-bolt handle bar clamp. I went to adjust the handle bars and loosened the bolt and got the bars "just so" and when I went to tighten the bolt it just spun. I tried to loosen it and it just spun. I might be wrong but this thing, fully seated in the clam should NOT be spinning should it? How do I make it stop spinning? Is there hope of loosening or tightening this bolt? Where in the world can I get a replacement for a 30 year old stem-clam bolt?
