    Saddle Clamp Fractured

    Hi MTBers,

    I'm the guy who posted about bent saddle rails. I looked closer and noticed that the aluminum bolted clamp around the rails was nearly cracked through on both sides of the top clamp. This could have been very bad had it broken while riding.

    Please check your bikes regularly, and the seat clamp in particular.

    The underside of the saddle/clamp area would have to be the part of the bike I check the least. I have to remember to check there!
