Default seat collar for a wicked.

I have a wicked which is a rider and built w/ a mash up of whatever i can find. I have no space in my life for garage queens. Soooo... it has a salsa seat collar w/ a qr which is cute but the post slips. I suspect the salsa lever has not enough bite and i need something like suntour, shimano or maybe Paul if th Paul collar can fit.

Anyone has any ideas other than scoring ebay for an original?

Btw.. i need a good looking 1in threaded headset. Black if possible.





Thanks

I think DKG was a BMX-focused company, once upon a time.
