Well, I'm not going to make even 200 miles this month. My seatpost (the one with the black clamp in junk after about 500 miles. Stripped grooves. It's going back. I'm thinking of ordering the Rockwerks (looks like an Origin8) that uses 2 bolts. Only $30 which is about all I can spend.
I figured out what happened. The block-nut on top doesn't seat entirely, no matter how much reefing on the wrench I do. (Not a good practice anyway) After a few hundred feet, it shifts and the mechanism gets just loose enough so the seat finally tilted back and stripped the grooves. Couldn't fix it enough for even a 3 mile ride today. Now I'm really grumpy.
