Is there an easily removable device/clamp that will allow a race number to be mounted behind the seat post?

Not trying to be a smart as$, but zip ties. The only time I have ever been in a race that used frame numbers, they gave us numbers that were printed on 1/8th inch thick hard plastic. It had 2 holes in it and we were told to zip tie it to the seat post.

Other than that, I have only had to pin numbers on jerseys and on rare occassions, shorts.

I raced in a league once that had these wierd soft almost padded self stick numbers we had to put on our skinsuits. They were weird because they were hard as hell to get off and if you ran your suit thru the drier with them on, they melted.

Anyways, zip ties. Or you could be like McGuyver and use duct tape. That guy could fix a broken stealth bomber with duct tape, and it wouldn't even matter what was wrong with it. He was a duct tapin' fool!

Not sure its legal. Its the rider who must be identified, not the bike. Frame numbers are only a secondary aid for identification.
Frame numbers were issued for this points series - nmsuperdog
