I guess i don't know my own strength

I didn't think i could possibly shear a bolt without some serious leverage. Apparently, all it takes is the misguided notion that if the seat tube is still not tightened, you should crank on the seat post collar bolt a little more.

The family bike is out of commission for at least a day, probably more. So much for sparkly new handlebars for the boy.

Definitely! I already have the replacement part i need for my bike.

I will do my best to not shear any bolts on your bike.
