check seatpost size first

Be sure the seatpost is the correct size for the seat tube. I think an LBS will have a tool that easily measures the seat tube on the frame, which will give the seatpost size you need.

If the seatpost is the correct size, I recommend a "Coke can" shim. Cut a section of aluminum from the can and place between post and frame. This has worked for me on my steel bike with a new post that wouldn't hold. Start with a section that almost wraps the seatpost completely. Then trim it as necessary to get it to fit in the frame.
