good job. its insane what it takes to get these damn things out init
It's unreal, why hasn't a manufacturer addressed this, probably as it's not a common enough problem to make it worthwhile, but given when it does happen it's such an ordeal you'd think some sort of seize resistant post would exist or a reliable method of extracting them.... I'd love to know how that Mr. Seatpost guy does it.
I think he uses a puller from what I can tell. having done this job several times, I would say for £65 its worth it sending to that guy.
the old Peugeot gas pipe frames seemed to have it right for this, the seat post collar was clamped to the post and that was about it, so only about 2cm is in contact. had one stick once but it didn't take much to free it off.
electric saw and drilling is the only sure fire way I've found to get them out
Does anyone have any experience of an alloy seatpost being stuck in a titanium frame?
