So I have a steel frame with a stuck seat post (dura ace if that makes any difference). I have been soaking it with WD40 overnight but I’ve read that might not achieve much and that penetrating oils in general don’t achieve a great deal. Next on my list is tipping a can of coke down the seat tube and leaving it a couple of days. I am going to try everything I can do easily at home before taking it to a shop.
However, I want to let the pros have a go before I get into the hardcore options of hacksawing from the inside out or caustic soda. Does anyone know of anyone good with this kind of thing in Brisbane? I imagine it’s a relatively common problem but would like to hand it over to someone good.
Really don’t want to damage the paint so heating anything to any extreme is off my list.
Feel free to tell me how you successfully removed a stuck seat post so I can feel hopeful. Yes, I have already used the search function.
