I tighten my seat every, EVERY single time I go out for a ride, but at about half an hour into the ride the seat starts coming loose, and in about 1.5 hour it comes out completely. ARRGHH!!, pissed me off.
Any comments?, suggestions?

Give us more to go on - frame type, bolt material, and seat post model. You've only got a couple choices either something isn't staying put (i.e. the binder bolt) or something is flexxing or even yileding (frame, bolt, and/or post). You could be stripping the hole - many people over tighten things on bikes, whihc leads to more tightening. Pretty soon it's stripped.

Are you refering to the seat and the post, or the post and the bike?

I assume the seat and post, but can't be sure by your message.

Cheers!
