Topic: LF> Bike Shops for Repairing of Vintage Look Team Replica KG96

Posted on: 25th Jun 2017 2:39 PM    Quote and Reply

Hi there,

I'm new to the forum and am in urgent need to source for a bike shop/solutions to repair a vintage 1991 Look Team Replica KG96 road bike.

The seat clamp has cracked and I've writen in to several bike shops including KH and Rebound Centre, and they all shared the same feedback that repair and replacement parts are unavailable and not achievable, even from Look HQ.

As this bike belongs to a friend, I would really like to find out what are the possible bike shops that can help.
If not, how else can I possibly salvage this situation i.e. welding down the seatpost permanently, attach a separate seat clamp to prevent the saddle height from dropping but the saddle will still rotate etc

Thanks a lot.

i would suggest welding another seat post clamp on the top of the damaged clamp. but need to be aligned , perhaps a double bolted clamp .

Thanks Seykai! Good idea. Will check around if any bike shops are willing to do it.
