Do you really need a new seat post clamp? Probably not unless you’ve broken yours or you’re building a new bike. But that probably won’t stop you from wanting a new seat post clamp. Especially if your bike is adorned with other similarly anodized bits from Wolf Tooth Components.
Yes, Wolf Tooth has added their own spin to the humble seat post clamp in a typically precise and colorful way. Stating that they wanted to make something more than just another seat post clamp, the team focused on a design that was light weight without resorting to aluminum threads or undersized hardware.
Instead, their 6061-T6 collar uses an M5 stainless steel bolt with an integrated spherical washer as well as a stainless steel anchor barrel. The combination is self aligning, and the 4mm allen fitting allows for you to easily reach the 6 Nm max torque spec without risk of stripping it out. Not to mention that it all checks in at 18-20g depending on the size.
Available in eight color and four clamp diameters (29.8, 31.8, 34.9, and 36.4mm), the collars have an 11mm clamp height and sell for $24.95.
In other WTC news, the company has added yet another fat bike chainring option in the form of their P2 CAMO spider for SRAM cranksets.
These are specifically for SRAM’s 1x fat bike cranksets for fat bikes with 197mm rear ends and 100mm bottom bracket and crankset spindle. Once you add the CAMO spider to your crankset, you then have the option of four different styles of chainrings, all in multiple sizes using the CAMO bolt pattern. This not only gives you more options for chainrings to run on different terrain, but also allows you to quickly change your outer ring without having to remove the crank.
The SRAM CAMO spider sells for $27.95 in four different offsets, though for fat bike use you’ll want the P2 Reverse Dish for a 58mm chainline/+4mm offset. The chainrings themselves start at $44.95 for a round aluminum ring and go up from there.
