    Perfect solution

    This is the second of these that I've bought. The first was for my wife's Whyte bike which has an odd frame for which something like this is the only solution when it comes to fitting a rack. This second one got me out of a hole (no pun intended). My Specialized Tri-Cross actually does have lugs on the seat stays, but because I'm repeatedly fitting and removing the rack the inevitable happened one day when I stripped the threads in one of them. I successfully fitted a Helicoil, and then thought I would fit one to the as yet unstripped side, just as an insurance against the same thing happening again. Big mistake. This time the clinch nut in the stay didn't survive being drilled out. This seat clamp mount solves the problem elegantly. It even offers better alignment with the rack's connecting rods but that's just the luck of the draw. I was concerned about ordering the correct size. Remember - it's the external diameter of the seat tube that's needed, not that of the seat post itself. Here's a good reference that may help: http://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12829977 The only thing stopping this being straight-fives was that the black coating had a missing patch. No effect on the function, but not quite 100%.

    Watch out for dimensions

    I bought the 31.8 for a 30.9 seatpost. Unfortunately the clamp has a lip on the inside so the diameter isn't 31.8, but probably about 29.8 (therefore not fitting a 30.9 seatpost). Luckily someone with some heavy duty machinery was able to remove the lip for me. Now fitted the clamp works fine.

    Clever device

    After moving to a new bike without rack mounts I needed a solution to attach my rack. This seat clamp is cheap, good looking and functional. The 31.8mm clamp fit my frame which uses a 27.2mm seatpost.

    Does the job very well

    I ended up fitting this to the seatpost of my wifes very small 650c wheeled racing bike in order to the pannier rack to fit better. It works very well for this purpose as the rack now sits at better angle and is far cheaper than the alternative.
