A few weeks ago I found an old Jamis Boss Cruiser bike on my local Craigslist. The bike had a few problems, including a cold welded handlebar tube and quill. Loosen the nut, and it won't budge. I've beaten it, heated it, oiled it, nothing. The bike looks like a it leaned against a wall outside for a long time.
I'd like to raise the handle bars. I figure I have a couple options:
1. Cut of the tube above the headset and find a smaller diameter tube and quill that will fit inside.
2. Take the frame to a local machine shop and have them mill out the old tube and quill.
What's the best option here?
