Allright so check it..

Ive been riding this Stolen etrain frame for about six months now. and i hate the built in seatclamp! Always letting my seat slip, ( yes i like to sit on my bike sometimes). Anyways since i didnt have pivitol i decided to buy the Stolen S.I.C. post and The NICE hemp seat, and i must say the S.I.C. system works great! i got the 135mm so i can sit,
But my Question is, should i cut off this ugly clamp and extra seattube? any suggestions to getting a straight cut at the right angle would be great? I was thinking i could mark it out at the angle i want and hit with the tabletop chopsaw?
lemme know what you think? im doing it this weekend and ill post pics of whatever i do so let the ideas flow.

Sure do it. There's nothing that's really structural as long as you don't damage the weld.

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.

just leave some of the post
because cutting the weld could end in a 300 dollar problem

I Have mine cut and u can tell in the pic
well just use a hack saw and u can basically eye ur cut i its straight by using your frame
and mine came out perfect by doing that procedure
and to make it clamp easier if ypure gonna use a clamp
make a slit in the other sides so it can clamp closed easier and use a file to clean it up

Yeah I cut mine off. With my old frame I just used a pipe cutter to get a clean cut. I tried it with my t1, but it didn't finish the job so I just used a hack saw to do it.

allright so i geuss i forgot i made this thread hah! but im back! And i cut my seat tube and it turned out sooo sooo dope!w00t after much consideration, and my limitations with a table mounted chop saw, an angle grinder and a couple files are about the extent of my tools.. i could have easily cut it like easternbmx55,(thanks for the pics and comments by the way). but since im running the stolen SIC post i wanted it like the STOLEN CHEATER.. But the integrated seatpost clamp was hitting the fence on my chopsaw. so i stripped down to the frame and mounted it in a vice an cut the clamp off off with an angle grinder by hand ( made a sweet key chain later on)cool so then i got it all blocked up in my chopsaw jig and cut it PERFECT!!! SO stoked! Pics below

BEWARE; If you aren't mechanically inclined to use these tools proficiently.. don't try, you will void your warranty F* your frame, and maybe a finger or eye, always wear eye protection when Cutting metal!
