Major bummer on the split leather tape. Will the new bars pack as well into the bag as the old bars?

Couple years ago I had a second floor motel room. While some people got their bikes up the stair way that had two 180 degree narrow turns, I decided to just fold my bike and carry it folded instead. And in the motel room a folded bike took a lot less room than a full size bike.

I should think about a seatpost collar like you used, on one of my bikes the seatpost is just a hair skinny and slips downward and a collar like that makes sense. I am often nervous I may snap the seatpost bolt because I have to tighten it so tight.
