Surly Constrictor. We were having troubles with exactly that frame – the seatpost kept slipping. I found this clamp, we tried it, it works great.


I have had a Salsa quick release on mine since I got it 2 years ago. No slippage problems at all and personally I would hate to give up the convenience of a quick release. Yes, it is a little expensive.
I am surprised to hear of a problem with slippage on an aluminum frame. The Tompson seatposts like I use have small lathe tool marks around the post which I think helps because it decreases the surface contact area, which increases the friction between the post and the tube considerably over something smooth like a chrome post, for instance.
The only problem I had with the Salsa is it started getting hard to operate and I should have imediately cleaned and lubed it but I didn’t and it wore one of the lobes down so that now the lever sits a little crooked. Even at that, after putting a dab of grease on the lobes it has worked as good as new.
