    velo orange seatpost

    i sheared the front bolt off the grand cu seatpost. it has a 30mm setback,but i still have to put seat almost all the way back to get the proper pedal revolution. when it sheared off, i lost the washer and nut that goes with it. i hope velo orange can supply me with the parts i need to repair this. i would like to find website to buy these parts if velo orange can't come thru with the parts. any advice would be appreciated.
    thank you pothound

    Can you find a suitable replacement bolt, washer and nut at a hardware store? Unless there is a specifically shaped fitting, the parts should be standard items.

    thank you the the bolts are threaded studs, the washers are convex shaped to fit the underside of a clamp assembly, the nut is standard hex nut.
    my problem would be the stud and the convex washer.
    thank you pothound

    This suggests, in the short term, you should call them on the telephone :
