Those that have the Giant TCR carbon bike.......have you experienced the seat post slipping? I am on my second frame.......the first one was fine, the new one the post slips......approx 1cm after a 60 mile ride. Suggestions to correct problem.
Had the same problem with my Calfeetheeatkins

Wipe down both the post and inside the seat tube with denatured alcohol. You want to make sure there is nothing there. Also make sure there is some anti-seize lubricant on the clamp bolt.
i swapped the post on my tcr out...Frith

I traded it for a carbon post with no setback. That wasn't because of slip but because it put me too far back. I know this doesn't help much although it may suggest that the problem is with the post rather than the seat tube.
