or drill a hole in it and put a bar or similar through, then twist it

erm if you buy new pads, do you get the bolt with them?

not sure if thats to do with your brake, but where the ball thats on the lever is, where that goes back in, it will be a circlip first, then an assembly after that i presume
i can take pics of mine if it will help

Careful with this method, I have had success using it, but have also had seatposts shear off around this hole.

no luck with the plusgas,

the seat post is permanent, its never coming out lol!

i won some sram x9 shifters and derailer parts, just need cables and a 9 speed cassette now :D


as for the seat post, im going to have to cut it out i think, i might have to cut the top off, and then cut it from inside the tube?
sounds like hard work though, and what if its still stuck but in pieces :(
