seat collar safety

Posted on
  • So I've got a 31.8mm seat collar, but the diameter is too big for the seat post of my frame. However, the inside diameter of the collar is stepped, in other words has a thin section at it's top, which is the right size for the seat post. Is this safe or should I should shim it?

  • If you don't know this you shouldn't be spannering on your own bike. Take it to an LBS.

  • didn't know what an LBS was so I did it anyway. now in a+e

  • Serious question: Is it ok to make a dent for a large chainring in an aluminium frame (ie hit a dent in the chainstay)?

  • LBS = Local Bike Shop.

    Go to one, soon.

    Yes, make sure you put the dent in the headtube.

    Ok I'll make sure I take the hammer to all the tubes. Bloody thing's gonna be covered in dings!! Soon as I get discharged from hospital. Could take a while for my coccyx to heal though after the seat post disaster earlier. Doc reckons at least 6 months. Watch this space though, I'll make sure to post pics of my work when I'm done.
