Before you try the lye, you need to verify what type of metal the seatpost is.

My guess is that you have a chrome steel seatpost similar to this, and lye won't help. Unless you tried electrolytic...

I understand. But what if it doesn't work and the seat post won't move? Or what if the toggle bolt breaks? There's no way to get it back out. You could back out the threaded rod but there's no...

To clean the seat tube I use a bit of sand paper wound around a dowel. You can get a dowel about 1/2inch or even 3/8inch and cut a slit in the dowel that you can thread the sandpaper into. Build up...

The problem with that is that if it doesn't work, there's no way to get the toggle bolt out. You'd have to back out the threaded rod and then you'd have the toggle bolt rattling around inside.

If, as you say, it isnít stuck in there or anything, have you tried turning the frame upside down and giving it a couple of good bumps on the floor?

Would a star nut for a 1Ē threadless fork fit in there? That with a very long bolt (metric all thread?) would probably give you enough to kludge a slide hammer from.
