    Help me find a clamp bolt for a Cinelli 1R stem

    So to make a long story short, the head of the bold that secures the hidden clamp mechanism on this stem is stripped and I can't find a replacement. Apparently its a non-standard size, like an M7 with .75 (fine or extra fine) pitch. Does anyone have any clue where I might be able to track down a replacement bolt? Preferable stainless? I love the way the stem looks, and I would hate to have to ditch it just because the bolt head is stripped...

    Thanks in advance,

    -Steve

    Plus they are alloy. Since the wedges are notorious for breaking or getting lost you might have some luck asking on the classic rendezvous list if anyone has a spare (as I am sure lots of those guys have boxes full of cinelli partial stems). Try also contacting the bike stand as I believe they may have the wedges as a replacement part, they might have the whole assembly. I sent them an email recently to see if they have any wedges as I am one away from having a complete 1R stem, but no reply I suspect it may have been bounced also. I'll have to phone one of these days.

    I concur, had I not trashed the 2 that I had (both lost the wedges) I'd send one to you. Not to torment you, but call alot of your local bike shops and ask if they have old stem-bins/buckets. I bet you can turn one up in an afternoon for free
