Missing bracket from saddle

    Hi. Wondering if anyone knows what the missing piece is called, and where I might find one? Its the lower part of the bracket that holds the seat rails onto the seat post. Am loathe to have to buy a whole new saddle or post.

    Seatpost clamp, although you might struggle to find a replacement part, they’re not necessarily universal. Might be easier to just buy a new seatpost, should be less than 20 quid at most.

    It’s a bugger but you may be caught here and forced to buy a full new seatpost.

    Seams wasteful but it’s unlikely you’ll find that individual part for your specific seatpost :-/

    Different seatpost have slightly different brackets, you might get lucky with someone having one in their shed .🤞

    Stick up the brand of seatpost to help identify the type of bracket.

    Looks like it's from a Kona. Might be worth contacting them to see if they have spares.

    They sell other spare bits

    where are you in dublin? almost certainly not likely to help, but i have a trashed seatpost (carbon, and i clearly overtightened it and it's cracked) but the clamp screws down into the seatpost from above at the front.

    Thanks. Yes, it's a Kona bike, Kona seat post. The part of the bracket missing seems to be the lower part (some sort of plate) Looks like this is designed not to be screwed in, but clamped in place when the top bracket was tightened down onto the missing plate. In Templeogue area. Happy to buy seat post, not a big deal.
