  2. Ciao Guest, ALERT FOR Store purchases - riding season is here, so we know everyone wants it yesterday. However, lead times are long and many things are sold out or back-ordered, and there isn't much we can do to rush anything. Always best to buy off Season when things are in stock.

    I'm trying to find a post by someone on this forum who found screw knobs that are a much better option for taking the saddle bags on/off without having to use a socket. I bought a set of screw knobs (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LY3PMEN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) but out of 4 screws only 3 fit properly and there's something to be done with the 4th knob so it fits properly.

    The post mentioned what to do about that 4th knob, but I can't find it now!

    Any help?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thinking about replacing mine with studs and wing nuts. Seems like they would allow more torque than knurled bolt heads.

    Try looking at www.mcmaster.com

    You should be able to find what you want from them...

    I recommend you keep your existing bolts and continue to use a socket or ring spanner to mount them.

    Wing nuts cannot be made to hold securely. This is from someone who lost a pannier bag twice.
