    and you may want to consider the Hope clamps....having had both, I prefer the Hopes over the Salsa. They seem more robust and of course most importantly, they come in all colors which the Salsa do not (only silver and black).....as I am sure you are aware that a blinged out bike is actually much faster

    cheers

    Hope Clamp

    Hey Fo,

    I'm thinking about the Hope seat clamp for my spot. The hope seat clamp is advertised as a 31.8. Do those 2 tenths of a millimeter make a difference? Just wondering...Thanks!

    I have the Weyless/Supergo one for half the price as the others. It does the same thing too.

    Hope!

    The Hope I just put on my Spot is 31.8. I have run Salsa's for years and on this build I tried Hope rear skewer and Hope seat clamp and really dig them. They do weigh a bit more but at the same time they seem to work better. This shop in Portland stocks the seat clamps http://www.universalcycles.com/

    Living in the UK all the LBS's stock Hope seat clamps, when I purchased my 5 Spot in September I sepc'd it with Hope seat-clamp and skewers. These are the only parts I have changed since purchasing it.

    The post was always slipping however tight I tightened it (note Hope QR seat clamp bolts have a reputation for snapping in the UK), swapping to a Salsa QR clamp solved this problem, no slippage now

    Skewers never felt truly locked so swapped for Woodman gator comp's and this problem solved as well

    I love Hope brakes though but will not use skewers or seat clamps again, however bling and sparkly the colours are

    that is unfortunate.....glad you found the fix. it is interesting though that I have the exact opposite experience with Salsa not being very robust at all....maybe we both got a bad batch

    I never liked the sala for the fact that they do not have any type of bushing between the lever and the clamp itself. The slightest amout of crud in there makes it next to impossible to open the lever. I have never experienced any slippage with the Hope or not felt that they did not close properly.
    Nothing to see here.

    Yep really strange but I surpose thats the way it is sometimes

    As I said though I really wanted these parts to work as i'm generally a big fan of Hope parts and with the rest of the bike being from the States (Turner, Fox, Romic, Thomson, CK) at least wanted some Brit parts on there

    Anyway please buy as many Hope parts as possible to help strengthen the economy on our poor little island ;-)
