My husband, a Clyde, is not a fan of quick release seat post clamps. He has switched his out for seat post clamps that tighten with an Allen wrench.
Here are some examples of saddle clamps; odds are you have one of these general types:
On this one you adjust the tilt by loosening the bolt at the bottom of the clamp. The same bolt also adjusts how far forward or back the saddle goes.
When I googled for Diamondback Wildwood there are several different bikes but they all seemed to have that type of post, with the bolt at the bottom. For example:
Yet another type is this one:
This type of clamp adjusts tilt and forward/back with two bolts, one on each side, that you can turn with a wrench.
There are other types as welll, but these are common on less expensive posts.
