The Seatpost Man

My business specialises in professionally removing tight or seized seatposts from bicycle frames using a totally unique method which will withdraw the post (intact if possible) in a safe and frame friendly way. This method of removal is only available from The Seatpost Man in Chorley, Lancashire, UK.  To date (February 2018) the running total is 700 + consecutive successful removals with 100% customer satisfaction.

My Inspiration

Over twenty years ago a friend asked me to attempt to remove a seized seat post from an old BMX frame. My method was successful and was my inspiration when more recently another friend asked me the same thing. As this seatpost was in great condition I designed and fabricated a tool to remove it, with little or no marking, to allow it to be reused and have since used this method to great effect on more customers bikes. I have now increased my tooling and can remove damaged or fully seized seatposts from most frames.
