    Missing seatpost clamp?

    Does anyone know where to find a the seat post clamp/binder for the 2003-2007 Tarmac?

    It had this weird aero tube reducer that mated to a conventional round post. I can't find it on the 'bay and my shop says they don't have it anymore, which means my '06 S-Works frame might as well be wall art.

    I'm also open to alternative solutions. A Transition aero post is actually a perfect fit for the opening, but I can't find a seat clamp for that either, so I've no way to secure it.

    This is what the bike would look like with the right part:

    Much thanks to any ideas!

    Poked around on Internet, not looking good for you... did you try asking Specialized directly somehow?

    You could take a flyer on one of these perhaps:
    https://www.bricklanebikes.co.uk/blb...at-clamp-black
    https://www.aventon.com/products/rep...96-32863331602

    Maybe you can mix/match parts if yours is just broken, not missing, to get things working?

    Note to self: Don't lose or screw up this part for my 2006 Allez.

    I just sent a note to Specialized Rider Care, though my past experience is that they'll just refer me back to the shop. I appreciate the links; unfortunately they don't appear to be the right profile. Grabbing an old frame and binning the entire thing except the seat clamp is my last-ditch option..

    Sent a note? Dude, call them directly. I have done so in the past and actually just called them today about a seatpost collar for my Diverge. The woman I spoke with was literally going through bins while on the phone with me.

    Good thought. No luck, she couldn't find one. The folks selling complete frames haven't gotten back to me, I don't think they're inclined to part anything out. My local shop suggested having a carbon repair shop create a proper post opening; this struck me as a bridge too far.

    I swear you are the only message in my PM.

    I also swear I have one, but I have yet to find it. I also have a broken Tarmac frame [cracked at the BB] that I have no use for. I save junk. Sadly I got too much.

    UPDATE:

    Gotta give props to my man Garrett at Global Bikes in Chandler, AZ.

    He found TWO of these a their Utah warehouse!

    They showed "0" in stock on their computers, but the person he spoke with was familiar with the part and knew where to find them! He only reserved one for me, so there will be one left there.

    I get to support my LBS this way and I'll get it faster, but I want to give props to everyone that jumped into this search:

    Everyone on Facebook in the AZ SteveBay group, and the excellent individuals on this forum: jetdog9, kiwisimon, Caesar2k and, of course, 1Butcher (Yes, keep looking, I still want yours!).

    I'll post pics when I get it in my hands and installed.
