    I want to adjust the seat angle on my SCR3. However, the bolt doesnt look like a standard allen key job... do I need a certain tool? Never had this probem before.

    Should just be an allen key bolt. Its a large bolt under the saddle clamp. Put an allen key in and try it.

    Il have a look tomorrow, didnt look like one today- but it was in the shade so I might not have seen it, and I didnt actually try with an allen key.

    It's normally quite a BIG allen key, like an 8mm-er

    The SCR2.0's post definitely has a large allen bolt securing it, for what it's worth...

    It's a single allen bolt 8mm fixed saddle, loosening it will allow you to adjust both fore and aft, as well as tilt. Ideally though the saddle should remain horizontal, use a spirit level to get this correct, do it indoors to assist with this as the floor is more likely to be level, unless you have a house on the Yorkshire coast!
     
  7. Careful now! People are talking out of their arses. Its a 6mm.
     
  8. I would just like to reiterate a point I made a few months ago about people making stuff up as they go along, please don't, not in beginners, it's just not on. OPs are after information not guesses.

    Oops!:becool: 6mm, it's 6mm, it was a hasty guess (apologies) roadiewill, I know whereabouts it is in my set of allen keys, guessed at it being a 8mm. :idea:
