Ann I'm not so sure that the the seat post bolt on a Super Record post really had a 13mm head- every one I've had has been more like 1/2". The allen head bolt for the C-Record seat post part #7350162, will fit. This is not the same bolt as the the one on more common Chorus/Athena/Victory seat post, which had a coarser thread. Alternately, SRP used to make a Ti bolt, which you might be able to find. David Benson Auckland, NZ
