Must be a Leeds thing - I got one of these fly-tipped into my boot last visit :|

Also had issues with a post that had been brutally removed and ripped the seat tube extension :o All welded neatly up now though, awaiting some time to tidy & build it.

Mind your back moving it around!

It is a bit heavier than the Karakoram I have which surprised me. I always thought Konas were lighter and the Lava Dome/Cinder Cone and Karakoram were similar prices BITD IIRC.

just my point, pete.

evidence suggests a failed hacksaw and peel out job. can work but the amount of hammering and swearing leaves you wondering what effect that is having on the rest of the frame via vibration etc..
failed a removal like that before, myself.

i say...vice and twisting action firstly. chemical second. when all fails, drill it.
hammer, flame, flying kicks will jeopardise too many other things.
all that was a note to myself really :wink:

hop it comes out rob.
