Hi Guys

Can someone enlighten me as to how to fit a saddle to a TomTou seat post please? See attached image. Its got a bolt at the top which is virtually inaccessible with the saddle in the clamps.

Appreciate your help.

    Can't you put it in from below like the other one?

    Replace the allen bolt with a hex bolt and then go at it from the side...

    The same set up as in a Cervelo Soloist - utter utter pain the backside.

    I found that it was a case of do up a quarter of a turn, extract Allen, do up a quarter of a turn and so on.

    And bear in mind this is one of those seat posts where you set the level by balancing the front and back bolts it’s going to drive you mad.

  • The manufacturer obviously intends you to use a saddle with a fart slot, which makes the allen bolt easily accessible from above. This seatpost has them both accessible from below, but you get the idea:

    Its the same on seat posts fitted to new Felt bikes but luckily mine came equipped with a Prologo Kappa Space and so the bolt can be accessed through the cut out.
  • Thanks for all your helpful comments Guys. Happy New Year.
