    First, try using visegrips if the bolt is already

    ruined, they should get enough of a grip to loosen the bolt (and hold the other end steady with an appropriate tool if possible). You might make sure your seat clamp next is the correct size, or that your seatpost is the correct size before you replace the bolt. What materials your seatpost/seattube are made of might be a factor in the slippage; the amount of grease you're using might be a factor too.

    Seatpost Clamp stuck need help...!

    I think the best way to solve the problem is to change the seat post the seat clamp currently the seat post provide by Scott is not that good and due to my body weight that one of the reason why the seat clamp unable to hold the seat post. Do you have any recommendation for the seat post and the seat clamp?
