Agreed; I have actually no problem with the Mini as it wasn't meant to be a performance bike. Out of the box it is a great offering. So no criticism to the original design per se.

My next step is to put a dowel inside the post at least for increasing stiffness to observe the effect. I have the difficult job to extract the 1" tube that I stuffed in there. I think the lathe might just work with the saddle clamp poking out the back end of the lathe head.
