Default Seatpost water drain protector ? Green thang ?

Hope somebody can help I am after the green thing that goes inside the seat clamp/ seat tybe on Fat bikes to stop water ingress into the seat tube. I don't know its proper name or if they are generally available or a FCC design.

If somebody has one to sell or a modern source, I would be much obliged.

The gaskets were from a supplier but the seat collars were from DKG. Dave used to have some gasket-less collars (but with the grooves) but last I heard the gaskets were well nigh impossible to find on their own.

Can't help with a pic at the moment (too busy) but have you done a search? There've been threads before, though I don't recall if they had pics of the gasket all alone.

I have some pictures, I will post them up later

Just don't buy one off 'sbrian' (he's on here and Retrobike), you won't hear anything after you have paid and then you will need paypal to get you your money back ...

This was a generic picture I found :



These are the pictures I got off sbrian for the one I thought I was buying :





Perhaps it was just a simple misunderstanding and he thought I was paying $42 for a couple of pictures ...

Hope they help.

Yeah, I did do a search but may have not tried the right search terms and lots of 'fluff' came out Il give that seller a miss but if somebody has one or two to sell 29.4 size or knows of a secret source, I'm all ears

WD Pro that is perfect. Cheers. However it looks like a specific seat clamp part with integrated sealing lip etc, not something standard

Did find this http://forums.mtbr.com/vintage-retro...te-585437.html

No kidding....that's what that is. I think I have mine laying around somewhere when I changed out my seat collar. I'll have to check around if I remember.

Yeah, I'll look for it this weekend and see if everything is still intact. Let me find it first and I'll let you know! OP has contacted me, but he has a plan for reproduction.....I'm thinking 3d printer would be perfect for this!!!!

Cool! Even if you do make them in hard plastic, I'd take a 26.425ish spare.

If you want to help out the Fat community, then please get in contact directly with member mojo ti on Retrobike. He is looking for a good condition example for fabricating reproductions made the old way ;-). WD Pro needs one so maybe yours could be forwarded on to him. I will let mojo Ti know about this thread too.

Hello,

I already make parts in reproduction for the collectors on Retrobike, Melivelo, Sunnproteam...
I can make you seals in supple resin in a mold, it is not of the 3D printing.
To repro seal, it is necessary to lend to me a seal of origin, it serves me as model to make a mold.
In retrour I offer you a free joint.

See my reproductions there: http: // www.retrobike.co.uk / forum / viewtopic.php? F=2*t=248131*p=1860803*hilit=Repro+part s*p1860803

Mojo.

A Big Thanks to BacktothefutureToyota for his help to the Fatcogs community by allowing the reproduction of the Rubber Gasket from his original seat clamp. Soon we can all have a fresh one that does its job properly, with the result that the seat tubes are 'less' likely to fill with water and rust. You will still need to inspect it regularly and use anti rust protection. Thanks also to Mojo Ti for making the new gaskets. In due course contact him if you need a fresh gasket made up.

Fantastic ! They look as good as the originals and should be nice and supple for a good seal against the elements.

Shipment costs France - EU/UK (0-2kg) = 10€ reduce to 3€ for classic postage, 6€ for tracking.
Shipment costs France - USA (0-2Kg) = 18€

Payments via Paypal gift inclusive paypal costs (if there are any).

Greetings Mojo.
