I use two of them. I tried to use Salsa clamps because they are oh so aesthetically pleasing, but they didn't do the job (2 Thomson posts in 2 Ibis frames). Tried the Hersheys and all slippage ceased. If you buy one, you can add as many more as you like for a very reasonable price; the seller is a real nice person.

ditto here on the seller-good guy... got 2 clamps.
For my M2 stumpy, it was difficult to get enough torque to keep the seatpost slipping on me.. I was ~225lbs at the time, and it would gradually slip down during long rides. I swapped that clamp to my wife's bike and she's had no problems.
I went back to a QR clamp (ie Salsa w/ cam lever) and had no problems.
No problems for me with the other clamp on a steel frame.

I believe Hershey went out of business and somebody got their leftover inventory and is selling it on eBay... but I could be wrong there.

peace,
Serge

Reason I think that is the brakes I've got are different than some of the ones listed on E-Bay. The older ones didn't use the same type of spring as the new (linear) springs.

I don't know about any of the other stuff for sure though.

DKG BABY !!!!

this was an article from a recent MBA;

Q. 1)In attempt to find the correctly sized seat collar replacement do I take the measurement meant to accomodate the seatpost diameter or that of the tubing in which the seatpost fits? 2) Replacing a slightly tacoed rear wheel also. Is there a wheel you might recommend for a well-ridden-and loved- 1996 Trek 8000 aluminum frame that can withstand some good buttock lashings(around $100- $150)? Maybe good bets for spokes, hubs, nipples, rim. Does ceramic make a significant difference in regulating braking power? 3) What are some good cables? 4) Would you recommend going to a 9-speed cassette? Should I try some test rides on 9ers? I just switched to Mountain Bike action from bicycle magazine- I am aware of the significant increase in action! Don't worry about answering everything. Any info is more than appreciated-it is worshipped- thanks- si.

A. Silas, Measure the outside diameter of the seat tube to determine the correct seatpost clamp. (DKG makes the best clamps in the world). 2--Talk to your local pro bike shop about your wheel problem. You may be able to buy a set of take-off wheels from an expensive racing or free riding bike. Ritchey or Bontrager wheels have offset spoke holes that strengthen the rear wheel against lateral failure. 3--Ceramic coatings generally increase low-speed braking power and the creamic lasts a million years.Your brake pads will wear out very quickly though. 4--Shimano makes the best cables and housings.
