Picked up 2011 FSR expert carbon and want to use a bolt on type seat post binder instead of the QR.....Anyone know of an aftermarket binder that is compatible with this frame? Thanks.......

You can remove the quick release lever and simply fasten a nut and bolt through the existing clamp. It's what I used to do on my old Marin Mount Vision and it held the seatpost securely in place.

The allen bolt and nut that comes with a cheap skewer set like this one will work.:)

The seatpost clamp on the 2011 FSR Expert Carbon is supposed to be 36.9mm diameter.

You can get 36.4mm diameter single bolt seatpost clamps such as the Hope ones.

You could modify one of them to fit your frame by using sandpaper to increase the internal diameter until it can be pushed into place.:)
