Also heat while twisting at the vice it helps a lot
Looks like it'll be the caustic soda route. I've tried all other methods and that post ain't moving.
I'm heading away this weekend so I was thinking of leaving it soaking in the caustic soda until I get back on monday then doing the whole empty, refill, empty, refill over the following days.
Watch this space
So after roughly 60 hours and 2kg of caustic soda the seat post is out of there. Works so well and I didn't melt my hands off.
Time to start building up this bike
Brilliant! Photos please :D
This is what was left of the seatpost. Ill get a pick of the bike later as I've currently got it drying
I have a Small Hija de la Coneja frame and bits if anyone would be interested?
I have the wheels and other bits with it too. If there is interest I can price it all up. I am moving soon so it needs to go, just sat in the loft right now
Here you go
@Go_Kat might be looking for something this size.
She's coming along nicely. I just need a 26.8mm seatpost, brake lever (being supplied by a mate), chain ring, chain and brake cable then it's polo time
Hmmmm.... Maybe, just maybe... :D
Question: Why do polo guys seem to like Ergons so much?
It's comfy since we steer most of the time single handed.
Haven't seen this little gem for quite some time... :D
I need those forks .!!
Finally got around to turning my Oak into something a bit more fun for rolling along the waterfront... Feels great!
Any more polo camps on the horizon? I'll come down and see you next time... 🖤
