    Slipping Seatpost Update

    So, after reading all of you guys' suggestions, I finally found the culprit of the slipping seatpost. As [email protected] said, the binder bolt was hitting the stops. It was bottoming out against the other side. This wouldn't allow the tabs on the frame to fully grip on the post. That's what caused the slippage.
    So, to remedy this, I built up a stack of washers, around 4-5mm on one side of th bolt. There is 1 flat washer. sandwiched between 3 'toothed' no slip washers. I tried it out, and I wrenched down on the bolt. No slippage. Problem solved. Threre are still plenty of threads on the bolt, so I can crank in more if need be.
    Thanks all for your help.
    Heres a pic of what I did. The washer mod is the stack on the right of the picture, on the right side of the seatpost bolt.
    Thanks again everyone.
