It strikes me as fairly ridiculous that this problem persists on expensive folding bikes. I switched out the stock seat post for an alloy one that I picked up from a cheapo folder. The anodizing is wearing a little so I don't know how long it'll last me, but it's never slipped whereas the original steel always did.
However, I wonder if there's some sort of durable, thin cloth tape, or textured tape that one could rap around the area of the post that is clamped, something with enough texture to prevent slippage? I've just seen some bathroom anti-slip stuff on ebay but it's probably too thick.
