hi all. having problems with my seatpost slipping down into seat tube. I own Giant OCR1 and this problem persists reagrdless, seemingly, of tension on the collar. help! has anyone had this problem w/giants? they use a seatpost of small diameter, and use a shim to bridge the space between the two. any takers?

I don't know if this will help you. I had the same problem with a different brand frame. What was happeneing was, the binder bolt was bottening out before it put enough pressure to secure the seattube. I changed bolt. No more problem.
