if I remember correctly the original seatposts on these are alloy shafted with a steel head and yes they can snap!

When I worked at Halfords I was always stoked when I got to work on such a high end bike, rather than Apollo Blizzards!

One of my must have bikes from back then, wanted one as my first mtb, ended up with a Raleigh Mustang which I upgraded as much as possible until I got my first Karakoram, after that I wasn't fussed for the Krakatoa!

can you salvage the frame though? a new post 26.4mm iirc? should be easily available.

Not too sure what's wrong with that, esp for £25. I'd be tempted for that cash just for something to ride to the shops on. These were low end mountain bikes and a step above ATBs / BSOs from memory.
