Fitting ringle holey to fat yo
Due to the spacing and the difference between original yo seat collar and ringle holey, how did you all manage to fit holey seat collars?????????

You might need to remove the collars bolt, slide the collar up on the seat post, slide the seat post 1mm down into the frame, then pry the collar open and hold it that way, and lower it on to the frame while twisting to work it down into position, then work the post the rest of the way down into the frame. Then reinstall the bolt carefully, possibly squeezing the clamp tight again to avoid misalignment & cross threading, and snug it down, just tight enough that the post doesn't slip, but not so tight you snap the collar.

I too have found some frames & posts are an easier fit than others.
