My trusty Trek has been through a lot in the last 6 years, but now it seems that its number is up - remains of very nice Campy Record seatpost now stuck in frame, thus frame u/s. LBS did it and I've phoned around and looks like not recoverable, although I'm going to try a framebuilder to see if it can be drilled out.
In the meantime I'm on the hunt for a secondhand frame, 54cm, or even a full bike if good value. Anyone got one they could give, I mean sell to me???

Just spent afternoon with a bike mate tinkering with my bike, mentioned your problem, he's had the same and solved it by taking the blade from a hacksaw and using that inside the seat tube to saw through the seat post, you can then prise out the tube using a small chisel.

Ive got a 54cm tifosi frame, forks, stem, seatpost, saddle, drop bars, with some ultegra bits on it (9 speed though), which I need to get rid of quickly, as it is taking up too much space. Quite a few miles, but good condition Give me a shout at the tour @ raftri.org.uk

There were a few ads in this Week's Cycling Weekly for 54cm bikes. Do you want me to send you a photocopy of it?

Spent all day Sunday doing it. Got most of it out but there's some stuck in there. I think I may be able to make it servicable though.
So how much for the bikes then??

Jolly good! With WD40 etc may be you can push the last few bits down, provided a new post wasn't too long it could work ...
