Hey Jimmy Peach

Out of interest whats happening to that scaffold pole of a seat post - I don't want it, just wondered if you were cutting five foot of the bottom and how much it would save

Yeah today at least, but in 12 months time that post will be pulled out a good three inches more and if your not bored with it in two yrs time you could be on the way to Mike Muz central with a super long inside leg

Thanks for the offer Shed, but I think RS is quite correct.... so for now at least we'll stick the old one back in.... :wink:

And the lad's done a great job with the lacing... hopefully get them true and tensioned over the weekend.
