- Can I trim 5mm off the top of the seat tube?
They're too big to ride around 😉
Thanks for the replies. I've been out earning money for a change!!
I realise I should have given more details so here goes;
The frame is a 2006, medium Cove G-Spot. Aluminium frame. I ride a small of the other Coves. Small G-Spot frames for sale are hens teeth at the best of times – there were 4 on eGay last year. I bought it thinking it was a small (as advertised) but it wasn't.
Not really an issue, I thought, as I'm on the cusp of small/medium. My first Stiffee was a medium and it fitted ok. Built up the frame and it rides just fine – although standover is non-existant it is not an issue on the move.
However, the release pin for the GD stops the post sliding low enough into the frame.
I have a multi-drop GD 1-inch then 3-inch and I want to use the full 4-inch drop (fully up for climbing, 1-inch down for general downs, full drop for techy downs/jumping/dropping/dicking about) I don't want to ride in the 1-inch drop to compensate.
Warranty of the frame is not there so not an issue.
Hadn't thought of extending the tube slot. Thanks.
Obi_Twa, Beaut. Hadn't even thought of sticking on one of the Ti Fly saddles instead of my Bel Air. I'll try it first.
If it doesn't work I'm going to trim it.Posted 9 years ago
