Don't remember if I talked about this but a few days after I got back from holidays in March, just before this whole mess started, the seatpost of my main bike broke, quite close to the frame. I ended up not touching it for quite some time, and now it's stuck in the frame and all bike shops around are full and not taking more bikes :blobmeltsob:
I tried heating up the frame, some wd-40, now some oil. I'm starting to think I'm going to lose the frame :blobcatmeltcry:

Remember this?

Well, I haven't got rid of the frame and I did a second round of internet search for ideas.

So I found one that seems like it might work. My frame has a "slit" on the seatpost, so I drilled a hole in the bottom of the slit, which gives me a place to actually hold on to.

Now the problem is finding something I can use to actually grab to the hole.

I've tried an old padlock, but it doesn't come out, tried some cables but I didn't had anything strong.

Back to the drawing board.

It's more looking like this.
I have to find something strong enough but pliable to go in the hole and then I can use to get some leverage. ūü§Ē

It seems to be moving after a lot of fidgeting, but I can't find a grip to pull it out. Arghhhh :angery:
