So I recently bought a Peugeot frame for $30 I didn't realized that it didn't have a seat post clamp. I bought it at a bike swap meet and the person I bought it from knew what he had and failed to mention anything. So I feel I got burned but it was my fault buyer beware I guess. If he did mention something I probably wouldn't have bought it. I didn't know they made bike frames without seat post clamps. I didn't know that quill seat post or expanding seat post even existed.
So after talking with a couple of people and looking online I made my own Quill stem seat post. Here is my question. What success has anyone had with their DIY quill seat post or expanding seat post? Did it actually work for you? I haven't had a chance to ride my bike yet with the homemade quill seat post. I'm just hoping someone out there has been successful with their Quill seat post or expanding seat post. Any advice on making a quill seat post. What has worked and what hasn't.
