Straightening Seat Post

Postby tmays » Mon Oct 17, 2022 4:32 pm

Was kind of struggling with a 4 ft piece of cheater pipe to straighten a seat post. Then I had an epiphany. Had just brought up some chain link posts for a fence a couple days ago. Got a 8 ft section, hooked chain into one end, stuck the post onto the seat post, and turned what was a kinda tough job for lack of tools, into a easy job. Laugh if you want :lol:

Hi,
You didn't say how much the seat post was bent, but if you straightened it cold, I would clean it where it bent and inspect it carefully for cracks.
The post could break off if it is weakened by cracks, when you are sitting in the seat.

Wasn’t bent much. I checked for cracks and it good to go. Thanks for the heads up
