1) Make sure your seat tube is clean and free of rust/burrs. Also make sure the binder bolt and clamp area is in good condition and lubed
2) Make sure your seat post is the right size (slides in and out without zig zag twisting)
3) Use a light coating of grease or anti seize.
4) And most important of all, take it out once in a while to clean and re grease. This includes quill stems.
