    Why don't you just stay out of the core and leave it to its rightful owners.

    Huh, so what you're saying is a concerted effort buy a group of people who all have common interests and perhaps talk on a board together could get together and all make complaints against the same driver (this is all theoretical) and get the police to be involved.

    Interesting.

    No place for cabbies in a civilized world.

    If you can't afford a car and driver on those occasions when you can't drive, stay home or, shudder, take public transportation.

    As for the seatpost. What is it made of..steel or alu? Tap the seattube with a screwdriver and try to determine how deep the post is in the frame....the tone will dull as you move up the tube. If it is Alu remove the B.B. and squirt some ammonia down the seattube. This may free it up. If it is at a height close to where you need it, remove the binder bolt and spray it religiously with a Liquid Wrench type product and keep riding it....at some point it will move on its own. If it is steel some heat may help free it up. Last resort is cutting it out. I have become an expert at this particular task.

    I dont resort to such shenanigans anymore. I have lost my bike rage tendencies since I got my I-Pod. All the jackasses only get smiles and waves from me now....oh and the full lane occupation tactic. Music calms the savage beast?

    Here's a seatpost trick I came up with a few years ago when trying to remove stubborn seatpost so I could ship my friend in Sweden his favourite ride:

    If the seatpost has the micro adjust style (2 bolts and a curved section for adjustment, like on a Thomson) You can remove the saddle, and flip the top piece over so you now have a handy clamp arrangement. Stick an old flat handlebar in there (or any sufficiently long cylindrical item), clamp it down and presto you've got 2' of leverage to twist it out.

    Disclaimer: I've done this and it works, but I have no idea at what point you simply break something!


    I suppose if you didn't care about the seatpost you could also just use a pipe wrench to get some leverage.

    I used the time honoured traditional way to get it out. Gently pry the seat clamp with a screwdriver, a little wd40, vice grips around the tube and them smacked the crap out of it with a hammer. Gone in 60 seconds. Now to see if I have a seat tube that fits.

    This is a fine method if the post isn't stuck really bad. You could literally twist the whole seatube if you put too much grease in the elbow. Give it a go...if it doesn't move with some decent oomph don't keep trying...it can screw the frame up. Spray lubricants/anti seizing products are yer friend.

    Well it wouldn't be too hard too hard to file a bunch of reports by different people. The problem comes when the police comes and charges you for filing a false report
