Seat tube after honing.
The bastard is finally out.
Soaking away and praying it works.
I've been promising John, I would take a look at his Lemond, that has a frozen seat post. He bought a new Brooks B17 saddle and we knew we would have to change the height of the post to compensate for the new Brooks. I brought the bike home, mounted it in my work stand and examined it. Sure enough, I could see rust from the steel frame and decided to give it a try at moving it. No way, frozen solid. I sprayed the post clamp area with P B Blaster for four days and finally got it to move. It took two more days of soaking it, before I was able to remove it completely. I honed the inside of the seat tube, to clean out the rust and corrosion and cleaned up the seat post also. Good as new.
