    Any source for DKG seatpost clamp in the Los Angeles area?

    Seeking a 31.8mm DKG clamp in the LA area, preferably for a competitive price. Does anyone know of any sources. Haven't found any thus far, and the DKG site hasn't worked for a long time.


    thanks

    Thanks, but Cambria is not in the Los Angeles area, and after tax and shipping it's not a good deal.

    Any reason you're insisting on that particular one, it's basically...

    ...a plainer looking version of the Salsa, and while I like Salsa skewers, their QR seatpost clamps skweak like crazy. They have a philosophy of metal to meal cam contact (no cam washer) making for a more secure and slip/flex resistant design, but as they're using no other metal but aluminum, sweak is the result. Salsa is aware of this and says it's a tradeoff of the design.

    Hope takes a different approach, using a brass cam washer, rather than the Delrin most use.
