Hello all !

I've made a new clamp system, based on the original, but... bigger ! An so cheaper than a (rare) spare part.
But it's a DIY part, so be carefull if you try to do the same... It's the only thing that keep your frame tightly closed when you drive your bike...



The original system (M6) has been replaced by a M8, and the axle of the bolt (which was bent) increased from M5 to M6. Not as clean than the original, but stronger I hope.
I haven't reassemble the bike yet, but it seems to close the frame tight enough.

Now, the big question: do you think it is enough to use the bike ? I've read on the net that if the frame is close tightly there is no reason to worry, but I find that the main axle play is always bothering...
Thanks for your opinion and advices.
