- Thomson Elite Seatpost – Can I cut it?
I bought the long one second hand after a cheapy failed on me, but it’s about 3″ too long and won’t go far enough in to the frame (on one inbred) :-/
Obviously I need to leave enough inside the frame to keep it safe, but If I make sure the length of the post in the frame is greater than the MAX amount marked on the post that should be fine I guess?
I also understand the issues with trying to cut a tube without distorting it, but that’s a challenge I am prepared to take…..Posted 3 years agoandylMember
just feed it into the hole in the top of your blender until it’s about the right length 😀
on a more serious note, the main issue is clamping it if using a hacksaw – ie be very careful and I would rest it on the just open jaws of a black and decker workmate rather than clamping it. Or use a pipe cutter, adjusting a tiny amount each time.
Also remember you min insertion mark is now X higher with X being the amount you chopped off.Posted 3 years ago
