I recently replaced the seatpost in my '83 gitane super challenge and I think I failed to tighten the clamp enough because I caught my pant leg under the saddle while I was jumping off and I pulled it up a few clicks, when I got home (~2 miles) I retightened the clamp but ever since then no matter how tight I get it, the saddle will still rock back and forth without too much pressure.
The clamp is the newer style thats integrated into the post, and I'm wondering if I could prehaps file a new groove to save it as I don't have enough money to replace it yet.
Any other ideas are also greatly appreciated (I always love cool ways to fix things)
