Saddle Sliding, Need it to STAY PUT!
So a few months back i got an easyseat from hobson seats, i love how it feels but there is a problem.
Ever since i installed it the saddle has a tendency to move back through out a ride, no more than 40 minutes and my saddle is in a very uncomfortable position. It only moves back, no tilting. i usally have to get off, adjust it and get back on.
How can i get it to stay in place?!
What kind of seatpost and clamp do you have?
If you have a straight seatpost and a separate clamp, make sure the size of the clamp matches the clamping area of your seatpost. If they don't go to an LBS and try to find a replacement that does. Then seriously snug that puppy down.
Wow, the Easy Seat. I rode one of those for about a year and a half.
Mine was/is an original from 1970-something. I don't know if your hardware is the same as mine, but I did get it to work. I seem to remember it being problematic.
If your hardware is the same as mine, get yourself some star washers at the harware store. That should fix the problem. $0.59 cent fix with extras to spare.

I have a seat post that has a clamp attached here is a picture of my set up.
Note the seat is in the exact WRONG position i want it to be, i should be a lot more forward.
One thing i do notice is that the seat clamp (which has a long metal part) doesn't fully clamp the seat stay. would getting a different post (one with only 2 points of contact) work better?
