Another small part to have a redesign this year. The collar on the seat clamp is now a universal style - meaning either bolted or QR can be achieved on the same collar (the QR does not come with a bolt, and vice versa).

Rated 5 out of 5 by jameslovestitanium They just work - buy one !
Latest version is better than ever with the revised single design for fixed and quick release.
Hope clamps are taller than most clamps on the market. This increases the clamping area on the post and that reduces slipping. Has a large wide aluminium bolt to save weight and reduce the load on a smaller bolt.
Engineered from the ground up, same as all Hope products.
Would like to see an Evo version with a Ti bolt in there guys...
Buy one !

Rated 4 out of 5 by theripper great looking
i have this in red, the anodised finish is cool and finished beautifully, is very light. i think it does the job just fine however, the bolt and structure is a bit on the weak side, i have it fitted nicley with no set backs but i cant emphasis enough!. . . do not over tighten the bolt, other reviewers are correct when they say it does not take alot of tightening to fully secure your seat post, just a firm squeeze is enough. apart from that its a really nice product, just dont over tighten and all will be good

Buying my second one for my second bike, great overall design, well made and had no dramas, does exactly as it's designed to do, hold my seatpost firm and personally had no dramas

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bronson Excellent finish
Excellent finish to the seat clamp as you would expect from Hope. Comes with an alloy bolt which does feel like it needs to be torqued up a little more than usual so I can see how people have snapped them hence only 4 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Timber69 Go easy on this clamp
This clamp doesn't need to be tightened up too much to hold your post in place and if you over tighten it with big monkey hands or that giant allen key your great uncle used to service tractors with then you'll snap it cos this is a lightweight clamp that also has a lightweight bolt.

A good clamp which grips nicely without the need to tighten the bolt up massively,excellent British engineering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous snapped bolt
Unfortunately, the bolt snapped with not much of an effort. Very cheap bolt, but well designed/machined clamp. Fortunately on the other hand that it is not difficult nor expensive to get a similar steel high grade bolt and replace it.

this has nothing to do with your stem, its simply a clamp for your seat tube, so that it holds your seatpost in place. to find out what size you need you can use a shifting spanner(must have mm markings on the jaws), simply open the spanner, place it around your seat tube, lighltly clamp it and then pull it off and check the diametre on the spanner measurment
