PM away please!
I've also preserved the paint on all the bikes, including one touring bike with all sorts of stickers from the lands it graced.
novel way to remove a stuck post
Maybe that is how 'the seatpost man' does it?
any tips for carbon seatpost stuck in carbon frame? will more than likely send to the seatpost man but thought i'd at least try something first...
I have lived with a stuck post for over 12 years. There's a lovely Salsa seatclamp around it that I'd like to repurpose though so hot & cold method will be tried which might yield a saved seatpost too I guess. Keen to avoid destroying frame.
Get some ice and be diligent about the hot and cold then penetrating fluid for a couple or more times a day.
I've most success the longer it is left.
Time and patience is key.
Just thought i'd report back and say yet another endorsement for the seatpost man. Posted my frame to him yesterday, he received it today and I had an email from him this evening letting me know it had been removed - great service!
Are you doing ice cubes then kettle alternately?
Yup, if I feel generous.
Gonna attempt a triple extraction in a day next week, signing off in style!
