Mr S. (Alloy frame, carbon wrap seatpost)

posted Nov 2, 2014, 12:17 PM by John and Yvonne
'I had a carbon-wrapped aluminium seatpost completely seized in an aluminium frame.  I had tried everything, from applying heat to brute force to filling the seat tube with cola and leaving it a couple of days.  Nothing had any effect.  I took my bike to John, and within a few quick hours it was sorted.  I had a completely undamaged frame, with the seat tube cleaned out, and the seatpost itself ready for re-use.

I have no idea how he does it, but I cannot recommend John's service enough.  Well worth my trip over the Pennines, and the money I paid for it.  It now feels like I have a totally different bike, the corrected seatpost height helps me deliver so much more power, with more ergonomical balance too.  If I was in the same position again, I wouldn't try anything else, I'd go straight to John to sort it.'
