Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Silly seatpost clamp question

I've got a frame that takes a 29.2mm seatpost and just stripped my clamp.
What size clamp should I be looking for as a replacement? I don't have a set of calpers handy but my trusty little metric ruler is telling me that my seatpost tube measures somewhere between 31-32mm.

Bring it into a shop, they'll measure it and sell you a replacement.

I was planning on doing that in the morning, but was afraid that my curiosity would be keeping me up all night (seriously).

It's probably 31.8 mm. That's one of the standard sizes.

After doing some light research, that's what I was thinking. Thanks, jonsam!
