I think QR seatpost clamps definitely slip sometimes. When I use one, I'm constantly raising the seat higher. So either I'm getting taller as I ride, or the thing is slipping, one or the other.

The biggest reason I won't use them is because I hate the inside of my leg hitting the damned QR lever with every other pedal stroke. I'm pretty sure I've gotten bruises doing that, but I know I can still feel the spot the next day. Me no likey.

Besides, how long does it take to grab an allen wrench and loosen the bolt that way? A few seconds more, tops. If you're racing in the penultimate stage of the Tour de France and shooting for a good GC finish, those seconds might matter, but for the rest of us, not so much.

Can't comment on the color coordination issue, that's purely an individual choice.
