    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

    This is what was left of the seatpost. Ill get a pick of the bike later as I've currently got it drying

    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

    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.

    Seatpost isn't a big deal so I'll do what's needed

    Saw that in the seatpost thread. Think I'll try anything before going down the caustic soda route as I'd probably melt my hands off or something
