Pashley bolt size

I just got my new Pashley MUni in the mail, but to my dismay I couldn’t find any allen wrenches (those 6-sided things) around my house that fit into the bolt to tighten the seat clamp. Does anybody know what size this is? Is it metric? I was anxious to ride my new MUni, so I used an allen wrench that was just slightly too small. It worked for right now, but I want to find the right size so I don’t end up stripping the head on the bolt.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

The parc tool allen wrench (which comes with the small parc toolset box)
works fine, unfortunately I don’t have the exact size in mind.

BTW is there another clamp that works on the pashley seatpost ? My seat
keep turning when I’m hopping and I don’t want to overtight it.

When I first got my Pashley, I had exactly the same problem. Actually, I
had the right size Allen wrench, but it was striped from all the use on my
old unicycle. Anyway, I the size you need is 5mm.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I have that same problem with the seat turning when I hop. Will it hurt it if I tighten it too much?

It seems solid, but I’m not taking any chance (and I got the miyata post
adapters I don’t want to screw up)

And I prefer to adapt it pretty often since I prefer a lower seat height
during trials and higher during a muni ride
