Hi all

I’ve trawled the internet in search of a specific “spacer washer” or “load spreading spacer” for my saddle clamp (Alloy) and seatpost (carbon). Shipped with Argon 18 Gallium Pro 2017.

I’ve requested the parts from importers in UK and the brand HQ with little to no luck. Maybe somebody out there knows where to get this very specific part?

Spec:

M5 aperture with outer dia 10mm with 5mm stack height. Alloy of some sort. And most importantly it’s hemispherical.

Thanks all.

I think what you need is called a hemispherical or spherical washer... I had a quick search online but could not find one in M5 size to your exact spec, but I did find this... maybe you will have more luck.

I found the UK importer helpful when I needed parts and advice for my Nitrogen, disappointing that they've let you down.

Could you not use a cylinder/barrel nut, like in this manual for the Gallium Pro (P14)

@PRSboy
Thanks for your time and info. I may have found a retailer to help out.
Meanwhile I’ve worked a barrel spacer into the shape I need with a file.
