My stock Pake seatpost binder bolt is horrible. The bolt barely tightens or loosens (as in its incredibly hard to turn either direction). Its been like this since i got the frame. I tried loosening it to take it out and take a better look but im about half a turn away from stripping the bolt head its so hard to turn....probably have to drill it out when i replace it. Any tricks to get it out? Its like the end that you turn won't move out from the frame, so its basically pulling the seattube apart when u loosen it.
anyone else had this problem? its the half/branded 1" frame sold on ebay.
I'll probably order one of these
Is the 17,19,22mm measurement the diameter of the female end of the bolt?
