    Seatpost keeps falling during my efforts

    I've got a Dolan DF3. I can't keep the seatpost up. After turn 3 in every 200 I practice, the saddle will either drop and/or turn to the left. It's a bit scary. And it's getting worse. Aside from that sticky stuff you can spray onto it - any other ideas? I need this to be bomber. Thanks

    pop can shim. Most carbon bikes these days don't have well toleranced seat tubes.

    I've also heard hair spray can help...

    i haven't heard that.
    any nice will be willing to smear some carbon installation goop on something for you for a cheap buck or whatever.
    i'd be more inclined to use the right tool for the job.
