Hmmm, now I want a Breezer frame...
I DO have a NOS Hite Rite tho, still wondering how I'm going to fit it to my Yeti 575!
I reckon the Hite Rite is due for a relaunch as there's a gap in the market for an affordable dropping seatpost.

Right what's not to like about a lightweight $30 seat dropper. But I can't say I've let the world know, of late.
Most all new bikes use a separate seatpost clamp, your 575 included, but this should not pose a problem. You'll need to get a clamp designed for a 6mm skewer or modify yours. The trick is to secure the clamp to the frame.
In the photo you'll see a small screw opposite the slot (BTW, this is not actually a clamp with 6mm skewer hole). That is a #6-32tpi x 3/16"-long dog-point set screw. Drill the clamp opposite the slot with a #36 drill (7/64" might suffice) and tap it with a 6-32 tap. Slip the clamp onto the seat tube. Screw in the set screw (or grind another 6-32 to a point) to mark the seat tube. Remove clamp to reveal where to drill. Drill with 3/32" drill. Assemble.
Oh, and yes, you might need an oversize ring clamp if your seatpost is over Ø27.2mm. I've got those in two sizes: Ø28.2 to 30.0mm and Ø30.2mm to 32.0mm.
Hey, I'll be in the UK soon: Snowshill Manor (Cotswolds) Veteran Cycle Display, June 26th, 12-4pm. Come on down and I can just hand you this stuff. Maybe we can grab a pint afterwards.
