Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

USE Alien Pave seatpost problem

I have a USE Alien Pave carbon seatpost and the clamp seems to rotate on the top of it. Is there anyway of stopping this happening - glue maybe? AFAIK you can't pull the clamp off, it just twists around.

The best solution for problematic USE Alien seatposts is a new seatpost of a different brand. Seriously. Those things have a reputation around here for sucking hard.
