    Anyone have suggestions on a quick fix that doesn't involve spending shipping cash for a new one? The screw is stripped so I can't tighten it tight enough to ride it.

    Can you retap it to the next bigger size? Ie. like from 6mm to 1/4 in? If only the bolt is stripped will a new bolt work?.......................
