Only $16 and took from Tuesday until today (weekend in there). Shipped from San Jose, CA to Kansas City. The 24mm looks about the right length. Will update when installed.
: I found a place called "Mr. Metric" on the internet. (Sorry don't have link address). They are out of California, but will ship anywhere. Very helpful. Should get mine in next day or so. $17 total for parts and shipping.
: RichC, thanks for offering to help last week.

: : If you're in the Boston Area, you can simply pay a visit to Wakefield:
: : Metric Screw & Tool Co.
: : 9 Lake St.
: : Wakefield, MA
: : 781-245-4950
: : Bad news for people outside the area is that the parts you want amount to less than $5, so I doubt they will take an order and ship it to you. I'd suggest doing this: Call and ask for the prices then ask them if you sent a check (including MA 5% tax) + a self-paid mailer (you'll need an envelope with some bubble pack and about 5 stamps on it) if they would just send you the parts.
: : If you're raising your seat you'll need 2 8mm couplers, I'd suggest 24mm long + 2 8mm bolts (Hex-head) 12mm long per seat.
: : Feel free to contact me if you run into a dead end.
