What I did today, well this evening around 7.15pm, was climb up on roof to fix aerial for TV as the wind had turned it round. Jeezo I know how Rod Hull must have felt just before falling off roof.
Balancing on a ladder that's lying on the roof, in high winds, pishing rain and in the dark isnae very clever. Especially when the wife and bairns are out and nobody knows you're up there. Idiot.
No offence intended but you're off your rocker
Got a stuck seatpost out a frame
Luckily a steel post inside a steel giant hybrid.I took everything off,turned it upside down and clamped the end of the post in a big bench vice,just a matter of twisting the frame till something gave.I had to hammer the vice shut to get a really firm grip on the tube
It took a hell of a lot of twisting and pulling for 5 mins to get it to move 1/2",but once it was started it shifted out without too much issue.Pulled muscles all round
It feels good to take an otherwise useless frame and give it hope
