I went to look at this Giant composite MCM team frame.

I didn't end up buying it. Looked to have a few issues the main on been part of the seat post stuck in the seat tube and some of the screw in cable stops missing.

Can't decide if I made a mistake not getting it.

Would removing the seat post be a problem, there is none sticking out.

Cheers

depends on price & how badly you wanted it? its not impossible to get the seatpost out, just very time consuming. theres a special grub screw type clamp. saw blade holder you can buy which makes it easy. but its still a P.I.T.A of a job

IMO best not buy. Sounds to me it's had a hard unloved life. From your comments

It did look like it had been well used.
