Well, it has arrived! It is all together and looks stunning but there is one problem… One major problem.
The seatpost is too long, way too long. I have to go to my LBS and get it cut down, but I dont have a car and I am waiting for someone with one to get home and give me a ride. The seat post is currently up to my upper chest, and sticks almost a foot out of the end of the frame !
More waiting… But now im going to see if my Norco post will fit into it. The norco saddle sucks, but its better than nothing! I managed to get on it and I was really high. I could easly touch a 8 foot high celing… More waiting = less fun
to save money just use pipe cutters u probally have one if u do some house repairs, it is this thing with a blade you spin around ur pipe… if u dont have one just bring it to u shop class at school, they must have on… it will save 10$
If you want I could probably do it, I’m busy tommorrow but I could do it on sunday. Cutting a seatpost isn’t hard at all, all you need is a pipe cutter, reciprocating or if you are barbaric you can use a hack saw.
Although it’s not a huge issue with the dx due to the closed bottom, don’t forget to file down the edges and the INSIDE edges of the cut tube as they will scratch up the inside of the frame and make it more likely to corrode.
