Seat Post Lock for a Juiced CCX

Recently bought a Juiced CCX

I emailed juiced before my bike arrived and they said seat post is 34.9mm, so i ordered 34.9mm nutfix (largest they have). Doesn't fit: there's no way I can expand it to get it over the frame tube. I tried using the nutfix nut, with existing collar, but it's too wide to tighten all the way down.

I have a suspension seatpost so very eager to protect it for theft. Seem largest that pinhead do is 34.9mm.

Anyone found anything or got any suggestions?

Did you measure the ID of the new collar and the one that came with the bike? I think there's a chance that the one you received isn't as large as stated.

How often do you adjust your seat? If it's as never as I do, then try my approach - I use a normal collar, complete with countersunk 5mm slot head bolt, and drilled the bolt slot round with a 6mm drill bit.

If I need to undo it, it's gonna take me 20 seconds to drill the bolt head off. It's worth it, knowing my seat's safe.

Pitlock sells just the binder bolt to use with your existing clamp. It may not work with your clamp though if the bolt on the clamp is recessed.
