I clamp mine to the seat post, with no adverse effects so far. Seat post can support my Cornish pasty/donut enhanced body - so supporting the bike’s weight is easy.

But what If there is not enough seat post to accommodate the clamp?

If carbon bikes are so great, why are the owners always totally paranoid about everyday activities like holding the bike whilst working on it, leaning it up against things, hanging them up for storage, or them suffering everyday knocks in use?
All us steel owners don't get stressed out about such things.
