Better attachment for seat post clamped trail a bike?
We just got a weehoo I go and are rocking the suburbs like madmen.
Problem is - I despise the seat post clamp.
1. It's messing up my polished Thompson aluminum seat post. But let's ignore that for now.
2. It is a plastic-on-metal surface contact. Not great in the long term.
3. The full weight of the assembly rests on the seat post collar. This creates some mad squeaking which resonates through the frame.
Assuming I can find, or have machined, the right sized tube to create a metal bushing-like assembly out of the collar-clamp-seat post interface, what can I put between this clamp and the seat post collar? First thing that comes to mind is a circular bearing assembly, or two Teflon donuts.
I can post detailed photos.
