I lost my seatpost binder collar bolt



Hi! I lost the bolt that secures the bike seat in place (refer to the pictures). Where could I purchase another one?

This is the Mercier Kilo TT.

Thank you!

You'll need to buy another Kilo TT and use it as a seatpost collar bolt.

Perhaps you could take the collar to a hardware store?

From your picture it looks like you're close to a bunch of other bikes. Just pinch a bolt from one of them.

Why doesn't he just use his own kilo tt as the binder bolt?

Ignore all the clever, sarcastic jokers above. Replace the bolt with a twist-tie, and if for some reason that doesn't work, it's the universe's way of telling you that you weren't meant to ride bikes.
