Replacement Bicycle Seat Clamp

everybody so today we’re gonna go ahead
and replace the seat clamp on our Trek
Farley five just a quick little video
nothing difficult about this project
just thought I’d share with you we’re
gonna be replacing the stock Bontrager
seat clamp with this one from hope it’s
gonna look a lot better okay and here’s
what that seat clamp looks like out of
the box fit and finished nice and tight
love the sheen on this thing the orange
color is going to fit the overall
aesthetic of the Farley 5 a lot better
so let’s go ahead and get the bike up on
the rack and get this done okay well for
ease of shooting the video I went ahead
and threw the bike up on the bike stand
there here’s the original factory
Bontrager seat clamp you can see that’s
in black our new orange one’s gonna
match our pedals and our grips that you
might have seen in a previous video a
lot better as well as the overall
aesthetic of the bike so let’s go ahead
an get this old one off of here but
before I do that I’m going to show you
on this hope clamp the actual size you
need for your Trek Farley 5 if that’s
the bike you’re using you’re gonna want
the 36 point 4 millimeter okay that’s
the one you want skip the calipers just
get the 36.4 if you’ve got a trek Farley
5 that bike this project is pretty
self-explanatory if you can’t replace
the seat clamp on a bike you probably
shouldn’t be working on your bike at all
to be honest with you go ahead and take
the seat post out let’s go ahead and set
the seat aside for a couple minutes and
then you’re just gonna want to go ahead
and get right back in there just loosen
up the old seat clamp there and it
should slip right off super easy
there’s the old one throw that in your
tool chest toolbox bike kit whatever
the only thing you really need to keep
in mind while doing this upgrade is that
this little cutout here on the top of
your seat tube is what makes the clamp
work so you’re gonna want to make sure
that you line up your new seat clamp
correctly with that little cutout
and I’ll show you that here close up in
just a second
with our old clamp off the new ones
ready to go on and as you can see here
with a little close-up
there’s a little lip inside of there so
the new seat clamp can only go on one
direction so you can barely screw that
up so go ahead and slip that on line up
this gap in the seat clamp itself with
that notch that I just showed you and
you just kind of slip it in place play
with it a little bit make sure it’s
loose enough and it should pop right on
in there and then you just tighten it
back up it is just that easy you’re done
and here’s that close-up as promised you
can see how the new seat clamp lines up
with that cutout in the top of the tube
there and that’s how the clamp works
pretty simple we just got to slide the
seat back into place all right let’s go
ahead and bring our seat back into frame
and we’re gonna go ahead and slide it
right back into place again if you can’t
do a project like this you probably
shouldn’t be working on your bike at all
leave it to the professionals other than
that slip the seat back into place
tighten it up and that’s it you’re done
you might have some minor adjustment
you’re gonna want to make obviously
based on your weight and based on
however you went ahead and set that up
other than that a very simple project
less than five minutes worth of work
I would hope and just a cool little
upgrade improve the aesthetics of your
bike and here is our unnecessary
obligatory close-up of the new seat post
clamp looks awesome overall with this
wide shot I hope you can see how much
that one little detail really sets off
those pedals and those grips that’s it
hey I really hope you enjoyed the video
and if you did I’d certainly appreciate
a thumbs up like and truly hope I’ll see
you on the next video okay the video is
over get back to work
you’ve got stuff to do you don’t need me
hanging around here but before you go
hey how about hitting that a thumbs up
button or commenting below I’d
appreciate it

Bicycle Seat Clamp Review

When looking at a bike seat clamps there are several different types available and you have to know what you are looking for in order to find the right one for your situation. The seat that you have on your bike is one of the most important parts of the bike and should not be overlooked when making repairs or buying a new one. With so many different styles out there, how do you know which one to go for? Here are some tips to help you decide on a seat clamp.

First of all think about the size of the bike seat clamp you need. Seat clamps come in different sizes based on what type of saddle they are designed for. You want to make sure that you get the right size according to what type of seat you have. You do not want to buy a seat clamp that is too small if it is going to hinder your ability to perform a certain maneuver. This is why you have to know the exact size of the clamp you need before buying it. There are lots of websites online that will tell you the exact size you should get, and if you are still unsure, simply ask a sales representative.

Another thing you will want to think about when looking for a bike seat clamp is whether you want a hydraulic one or a tension one. Both of these seat clamps work in very similar ways and you may not notice the difference at first. The tension bike seat clamp works by tightening or loosening depending on the weight of the person riding the bike. This is the better of the two because you can simply tighten if necessary but loosen it if the weight goes down.

When you go to purchase a clamp, make sure you take note of the brand name as well as the model number. Most of the time the model number will be engraved right on the clamp itself. Look for this information before purchasing so you do not have any problems later. If you purchase a clamp that is not from the brand you are familiar with then you can always ask the seller for help. Many people love helping people out and if they cannot help you then they will definitely recommend the best place to buy your clamp from.

Before buying a seat clamp you also want to make sure that you measure the area where you are going to put it before you make a purchase. Measure the width and height of your bike. This is important because you need to know how much space you will need to install the clamp. You do not want the bike seat clamp to be too big or too small because you will not be able to use it properly. Measure the width and height again to be sure you get a clamp that fits your needs.

The clamp will usually come with installation instructions, which are usually easy to follow. After you install the clamp, it is pretty much set up and ready to use. Now all you have to do is test it to make sure it is working correctly.
