Hey, it is just the cables that have broke nothing wrong with the phsical rails, unfortunantly you cant just get the cables. If you could source cables the correct size it would be an easy and inexpensive fix, sorry

Many moons ago when i rode a push bike, when ever we broke a brake cable we were able to buy a universal cable and cut it to length and then assemble it together. Its just a thought but are these cables still available if they are then your seat could be fixed for next to nothing, bypassing the £130 the stealers are trying to rob you of. The only other suggestion is a second hand cable if someone is prepared to sell you one.
