    Cracked seat lug

    I have a small crack in the seat clamp of my Bob Jackson Special Tourist where the bolt goes through the clamp. Can this be repaired and if yes roughly how much would the cost be? Should I try to contact the manufacturer to get a replacement lug? Finally, can anyone recommend a shop or builder to do such repairs if they are possible? Thanks for your time.

    do you have a picture? How old is the bike? If nothing else, what remains of the seat post bolt ears can be removed and replaced. There have been a lot of frames built this way, particularly back when lugs were pressed steel. I think that would be a much cleaner repair. You also don't have a location, that would determine who might repair it.

    bob jackson would stand behind his work in a generous way i would think. it sucks cause there is almost no way to fix this without messing the paint, perhaps a quick tig job putting on some new binder bolt ears would leave you with only some epoxy or enamel touch up. good luck!
