    Can i replace my seat post collar with a quick release?

    I have a DiamondBack Hannjo, in order to get the bike in and out of my car i have to lower the seat. The frame is Fully Butted 6061-T6 Alloy.

    Can i replace the seat post collar with a quick release seat post collar?

    And if so what size would i need?

    The seat post, Alloy is 27.2mm.

    Thanks!

    Should be able to find one for that. I`d either take it to the LBS so you can test fit the collars or measure the seat tube OD with precision calipers and order online.
    Recalculating....

    Yes. There are no rules. But be careful. It's a slippery slope. Before you know it you'll be swapping frames.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    A low cost vernier or dial caliper is your friend when swapping parts on a bike.

    Measure the seat collar rather than the post because the post likely has some irregular paint coating on it, but the collar is likely machined.

    For that matter, many collars have their size stamped on the inner surface these days. Remove it and have a look.
