No seat clamp mod...

Is there a practical way to make the seat clamp of a conventional frame be like the one on a eastern grim reaper. You know, under the TT. I was thinking about bring my bike to the metal fab shop at my school and giving them some pics of what I want.

Wonder if you could have the metal shop extend the slot in your seat tube down below the top tube and then fab you up a two piece clamp that you could use below the top tube?

Seems that it would take lots of cutting and welding to replicate the Easter system

Your last phrase makes absolutely no sense.

There might just possibly be a spelling error...

hint. hint.

If you didn't use all those big words i'd make fun of you.

Plus you belong there more then i do.

1. I don't own a Sunday, Eastern or Fit Hawk.
2. I don't want any of those.
3. I don't drill holes or 'mod' my bike other then cutting my seatpost and making that seat which i no longer use/it broke.
4. I don't go there anymore
5.BikeForums is better.


I have to admit though they do have a cool concept of a thread where you post your ex girlfriends and suchs pictures. In their case it's to see who wears the coolest jeans and shares them with their girlfriend. But in normal peoples case it's a contest of whose got the hottest chick yo.

We should have a contest of who has the hottest chick... Expat may win this one (he isn't dating his daughter, but he has one... so it counts).

Also, how do I belong there more than you do?

Well beofre I start getting finger pointed at me, I am not doing it to be "trendy" I just really like the looks of that clamp system, but i would never be caught dead ona eastern and couldnt afford one anyway. S&M is starting to use that design, but again I cant afford it. Plus my frame is taking a beating and is still pretty much straight as a arrow and I have no need to replace it.

There's only one form of incest that I would find acceptable... but the mother can't be too old.

If she was a member of this forum, there would not be much talking about her.

But hopefully there would be more pictures of her. :-)

Nah. She'd learn from the best what to post, and not post.

Does kissing feet help up my chances of becoming an admin?

Yes, there is a way. Is it practical? No.

If you really, really need to lose those two ounces that bad, then eat at Subway. With Jarrod.

I did it, and put some pictures in the bike check thread...probably like 5 or 6 pages ago. Don't do it below the top tube, do it above. It will allow you to cut your post and have more variation of seat height.
