    Xc3 Stem Steerer Combo - Bottom Bolt

    First time post here! I have managed to wreck the hex hole on the bottom bolt on the XC3 steerer tube. I managed to undo with a delicately placed set of mole grips on the outside, and now want a replacement while fork is away being serviced. Anyone know if I can source the bolt with laying out £95 for a whole new stem steerer. Drawn the usual blank with Cannondale Europe.

    Don't miss any ride time. Here is a quick fix to keep rolling as long as the only issue with the bolt is a rounde out wrench hole.

    1st -make sure the lower clamp bolt is loose.
    2nd- drill 2 small hole on the stem bolt to allow you to use a pin spanner.
    3rd- install and tighten the stem bolt.
    4th- tighten the lower clamp bolt
    5th- go ride, until you can find a new one

    genius idea! many thanks. Holes drilled and pin spanner at the ready for when fork comes back.

    Anyone out thereout know where to source a replacement as it still looks pretty mashed up!

    You local Cannondale bike shop or REI

    That may not be helpful, but either should be able to get it for you assuming you are in the US.

    Given he stated the price in £ and his nickname finishes by UK, I think he may be from England...

    Smart assing aside, a Cannondale dealer is the best bet.
