Richard Sachs Seat Lug Survival Kit!

Keeping things tight is part of the task. Around here that includes the seat post. After 45 years at the bench, having tried countless brands and designs, my own is now a reality. My desire was to produce a seat lug bolt assembly whose quality and precision matched the frames I make. Not a part from the Carter era. Not a part made for the aftermarket. Not one made to a price and stored for convenience in the tool box or glove compartment for that fateful day when it was needed. I wanted the component to be as well thought out and manufactured as all the others I’d assemble my bicycles with. Now I have it.
