Seatpost is now free after letting oil drip into it, heating lightly with a hair dryer and careful prying underneath with a narrow putty knife to get it started. She moves as she should now after I kept moving the post up and down and adding lubricant to flush all the debris..

Now to get the service manual for the Sturmey Archer SRB-3. On the drum brake side, I notice little bits and chunks falling out of the recessed area under the black cover plate. They seem to be orangish or yellow in color. Is this a seal of some sort or actual part of the pad or shoe? Does this have an exposed brake pad? If so, .would a hardware store have a work around maybe? The broken spokes I will have to make. I'll remove one from each wheel and copy them. Since all the broken ones on the rear are on the non drive side, they will be the same. And of course the fronts will all be the same. My bud has a spoke threader.

And yet one more question for Mobiky Genius owners. When the bike is unfolded, do you unthread the stay tube so it is tight in it's slot? I notice if I do this, there is no slopping or sagging of the frame when I pick it up by the seat. Should there be a little play or no? I can always loosen it by threading it in before folding. Takes only 3 or 4 turns. I just wanna know if this will damage the frame before riding it. The onlinr manual is vague about how to set the stay tube.
