Tips for getting stuck seat post out?

Hi, Any tips to help get a stuck seat post out? It's jammed fast and I doubt any of the WD40 I'm spraying on is getting anywhere inside either. Also, I am not the only one with trouble as it has so many marks on the post where the previous owner has had a go Thanks in advance http://farm9.staticflic...

Re: which language to learn

Whichever one you go for, check out Michel Thomas course/method.
There's a great iPhone app. App is free, but you download each course separately.However, they are reasonable price in my opinion.

Btw - Google/Wiki, Michel Thomas - he has a life story to beat most.

Re: Lovely ride today!

I was out for a nice ride yesterday afternoon, as I finished work at lunch. Then did loads of little trips around town today that would have taken me ages in the car. I'm loving this 'new' Viscount Sport. It handles very well, and I have so much faith in it. Here's a a pic. http://farm9.staticflickr...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Just took advantage of lunch time finish at work and some decent (but cold) weather, and got out on the 'new' Sport I love the way a Viscount handles...When I got back home and told my wife I'd just had a great time she asked 'what is it that makes it good or better than other bikes'? And to be hone...

Re: Payment by bank transfer?

I wrote cheques for years without any issues. A cheque has my name and bank details. Of course I was sending cheques to companies organisations or individuals I trusted. I wouldn't be concerned about receiving a payment by bank transfer from a long standing member of this forum. That said can't rem...

Payment by bank transfer?

Hi all, Don't know if this is the right area for this question but anyway... Someone has offered to buy a bike from me on the forum and wants to pay by bank transfer. I would have preferred Paypal for many reasons, but that's besides the point now. What details do they need of my bank account to pay...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hi Viscount lovers! Well, I managed to snag this little beauty at the weekend and just got time to post these up. It's not the unmitigated joy I was hoping for as the seller told me it was 21" frame, it isn't it's at least an inch or so bigger, nearer 23" if you measure up to the seat stem...

Re: where to go this winter?

I can vouch for climate in Madeira.... Went a couple of winters ago. Unfortunately had torrential rain and some mud slips off the mountains. Nuff said. Yeah, probably should have made it a bit clearer. Been there 3 or 4 times in last 8 years or so and that freak rain was a one off. The locals had n...

Re: where to go this winter?

I can vouch for climate in Madeira. Always nice and warm, and pretty constant all year round. Went a couple of winters ago. Unfortunately had torrential rain and some mud slips off the mountains. Also had a branch fall on my head on Christmas Eve outside a church (I took it as a sign :wink: , Omen s...
