Thanks the tool arrived today, worried about doing it now!
Do I cut it on opposite sides, so that the seat post is left in two halfs?

Image

I also recieved a parcel from eBay but the chain was missing I don't know if he forgot to send it or if it had dropped out in the post :(

Image

Thanks
James :cry:

id say, cut down one side, the put in some more fluid of your choice
gt85, pluzgas or whatever
and then see if it will move, if not try to close the seat post together

and then if that doesnt work, cut down the opposite side

yep thats the same setup as me! i love mine! its flawless

have you got the ebay link? was it definitely a chain included?

hey yeah, the chain went missing in the post i think :( ive ordered one from another seller but after i bought it, i realised it was a taiwan seller, hope the qualitys ok!

i bought a 9 speed cassette too, and guess what, theres still more stuff to buy :(:(

bikes are so expensive for parts! cars never cost this much! :P

the freewheel part that the cassette goes onto is too big, here is a photo:

do i need to change the whole hub? it looks really difficult to take the wheel off, do i have to take apart every spoke from off the rim?? :(:(:(

ffs really! im so thick!

this is the chain http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2010-KMC-X9-SL-GO ... 53e7179134

i read a good review about them,
i wanted to get a recon cassette too to go with it in gold to match the bike,
but i read they dont last very long and wear really quickly

im going to head out to the garage now and try taking out the plastic piece :)
