Old New Seat Clamp

A recent phone call from a customer prompted me to do a quick search of our BLOG archives for the original article Mike posted about our redesigned seat clamp. Turns out that was over 3 years ago but it seems there are still some folks out there that are not aware of that fact. Anyway, here’s what you need to know. The new seat clamp design separates the seat mounting and clamp tensioning functions. It uses one set of bolts to tension the clamp, making the initial set up extremely easy, and a second set of bolts that hold the seat, which allows you to install or remove the seat in a snap without messing with the clamp tension. This means you’ll never loose your seat position if you take your seat off. The other good news, this clamp will work on any Bacchetta model that uses the old style clamp. And at $30 USD it’s a great low cost upgrade that makes traveling with your bike a whole lot easier. The new seat clamps are available at the Bacchetta store:
