    Have a Fizik saddle with those shiny Kium rails. Noticed it slipped backwards mid ride so tightned the bolts and still slipping. Not going to over tighten as the seat post is carbon. Anway got home tonight, took the saddle off and put electrical tape on the rails where the clamp touches. Will this stop it slipping? Any other ideas?!
     
  2. Gripper paste.

    I put a smear of carbon grip paste onto the clamps before putting it back on. Hopefully coupled with the tape it wont move

  5. We had a rider with a ( very pricey ) bike, on a 3 day challenge ride I was leading on, last month. He had the exact same problem, the gripper paste did the job for him.
