Got lucky today (no not that gutter minds). My seat post slipped down on a cub ride so I worked my tool out while pedaling to adjust at the next stop sign. Moved the post back up and oops... The bolt stripped. It felt snug enough but fell on the 1st bump. The luck part? I had a habit of breaking the heads off the top of my seat posts so I had a hose clamp around the top of the post to keep it from splitting and impaling me. That and I had used another hose clamp to fasten an old broken seat bag to the rails. Between the 2 clamps, I was able to keep my seat up and make the 20 miles home.
