Nice job! And you will have the scars on your hand to remember the happy hours spent removing this post...lol

Woohoo!!!  I can only imagine the euphoria when you felt it start moving.


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Good lord,  sure that was a seat post and not a fence post,  almost to the bottom bracket, the frame is probably 5 lbs lighter.    BFH prevails.

Re: Brutal stuck seat post

I just recently removed a stuck post roughly 2 weeks ago.Heres what I did.....

Took the frame to my place of employment.Welded a long piece of pipe to the seatpost(like a T),sprayed alot of liquid wrench into the seat post tube and waited until I got off work.Got a coworker to hold onto the frame while I twisted the post out...came out with a bit of muscle on the first try.

The frame the post was stuck in was a Mongoose Californian pro.

Would you trust a lazy drunk to weld up a frame that will be ridden hard?

Great job!

I know exactly how great it felt to FINALLY get the post out of the frame. In my case, it was an alloy post in a steel frame, and I used lye to, uh, fix things.

Re: Brutal stuck seat post

I like the sawzall approach. I think I also would have welded a big ass nut to the top of the post to have a solid thing to hit against and twist on.
