Default Re: Seat post stuck

I checked the 1st post again, yes OK. Like to see how it works out when you get the work done.

I had myself use a seat post with a shim. It was something that still was not right for a bike and left an out of round dent up on the top of the frame tube when I tightened the clamp. I was able to remove the seat post with great difficulty. Before I noticed that dent, I sanded the tube and the seat post and was using it again and wondering why it still was a bear to move.

I fixed the dent by trying to hammer and grind it out some and am living with it that way.

Now that I know that I could just slice off just the top where the clamp is and weld on another part. It could be either from another scrap bike or possibly made from spare metal tubing.
