Grrrr. I’ve completely had it with saddle removal bolt. Spend ages failing to secure my sear back on. Gave up.
A) A longer M5 hexbolt would make locating it easier.
B) Fixing 5mm threaded rod into the captive nut and doing a locking nut up from underneath
C) Wide elasticated strap
TBH at the moment a simple elasticated strap has my vote. There’s a good cavity under the saddle for a tool kit I’d like to use but I’m not prepared to tackle that ruddy bolt each time.
Many, many thanks Ian for taking the time to share that object of beauty. I will try and create something similar.
The ‘captive’ nut, bit of a misnomer if ever there was one, seems to have a wobbly life of it’s own and won’t stay still. Maybe that needs locktight as well. I’m also getting a tap and die set while I’m at it as I think the nut’s thread has become somewhat unwelcoming to all my advances.
