Re: how to make a cheap layback seatpost.
youse guys are taking this way too far. IKEA computer desk? i wouldn't trust that to hold up my computer, much less hittin' a manhole cover at 35mph.
and melting aluminum? if i was a blacksmith, i'd just make a whole bike with a hammer and an anvil.
seriously, it's just a handlebar seatpost. no need to go so extreme about it.
