Has anyone else had or heard of people having problems fitting seat posts in cult frames. I have the cult badboy v2 and a cult seat/seat post combo, and I had to use a dead blow hammer to install it now it seems impossible to get out. How can I solve this?

you gotta take it out, try using some 3 in 1 or WD40 and then stretching where the integrated clamp is with a flat head screwdriver.

It's pretty simple, sometimes there is a little too much stress and it just stays like that, make sure not to over tighten the clamp!

Dumb question... But did you loosen the seat clamp before you pounded it in? That might be why it was so hard to get in.

Only thing you can really do about it now is spray WD40 in there and let it sit for awhile, then try to yank it out by twisting the seat/post and pulling on it at the same time.



Put some grease in the seat tube as well when you go to put it back in. People say that's a dumb thing or unnecessary but if you do that, it won't seize in there.
