To get the ball rolling:

Is there an easy way to remove the main pivot pin in the XCR?

Ooo thats a toughie, there are a couple different variations on the main pivot as i recall (bearing differences/bushes). But you mean the main sleeve?
I think i used another sleeve to knock it through. Otherwise a very good fitting socket?

Oh thats good. Think thats how i did it before. I say very close fitting as the sleeve isnt massive thick etc.

Exactly. The rusty tent peg could only go so far :)

Is the seat post loose and rattle-y in the tower on the STS XCR?

.. bought a frame and the seat post seems too small.

Done up the clamp & it slips in the tower.

The next size up won't fit :(

Having the seat tower crack, like on the XCRs, worries me.

No wonder there's so few of them around now.

???

Had the idrive apart the other day.

It's good stuff.

The supplement makes it pretty straight forward.
