Stuck Seat Post

The Raleigh Yukon I had in recently had a stuck seat post, this often happens and is particularly tricky when the seat is full down.

With only the last 2" sticking out this was always going to be tricky to remove and the normal methods of removal were soon abandoned.  The last option was to cut in out which was hard work with the weather we've been having.  


As you can see from the image below there was a lot of corrosion on the bottom part of the post and the inside of the frame was just as bad to get the new post to fit the frame had to be reamed out to remove the corrosion.



All of this is easily prevented by regular maintenance
