I've been riding my new Prince for about two weeks and I've noticed a small problem. About 30 min into my ride the seat post slides down with about 3-4mm. If I don't stop to adjust the height it will continue to go down. This is a problem because the change becomes noticeable and my ride quality suffers.

I'm not sure if this is a problem with the seat post collar or the seat post itself. I've taken the seat post out and checked it and everything seems fine. I've tighten the collar to the
recommended force which should be enough in my mind. The seat post has a very smooth finish so that may contribute to the sliding.

For such an expensive frame this is a major issue, I'm a little bit disappointed with the Prince. I've never had this problem on other bikes I've owned. I'd appreciate your advice on what to do. My weight is 168 lb.

Has anybody else had this problem?
