- Clamp to set seatpost insertion depth.
To reduce the amount of faff when I reassemble my bike after pulling it out of the car boot, I want a clamp to put on my seatpost to set the insertion depth.
(This is to go on the seatpost itself, ie it’s not the seatpost clamp on the frame).
I remember seeing these around in the past but now cannot find them.
Anyone know what they are called these days, and who sells them? They may have been called cock rings, but searching for that is too diversionary…Posted 4 months agootsdrMember
The Fizik collar also diverts water/mud over the seatpost clamp and avoids it getting into the frame, to some extent.
I have used the device suggested by scotroutes with great success after switching to a frame with an integrated clamp (and a different seatpost diameter).Posted 4 months agocoreMember
I’ve always thought a post with some sort of clamp on the post itself to set the height, and a groove machined into it/a matching clamp would be ideal for this, keep the post straight and where you want it height wise, ideal on a more XC bike where you don’t drop the saddle but have to remove the post frequently.
Someone did bring out a seatpost that ran in a channel like this for their own bikes I think, last year maybe?Posted 4 months agoJoeGSubscriber
A clamp that goers onto a seatpost to mount a rack might work.Posted 4 months ago

Brilliant, just what I want and the mounts solve another problem I hadn’t mentioned.
And thanks for all the other suggestions.Posted 4 months ago

Problem with clamps and tape is you cannae drop the saddle how will mrcyclo shred big gnar or indeed “send it”?
You’re doing it wrong. Up with the front wheel, arse in front of the saddle, and unicycle down. No dropper needed.
Nae problem (just don’t ask for a demo 🙂 )Posted 4 months ago
