Wanted to adjust my seat a tiny bit (not essential as I rode it 100klms fine) and noticed that even after I loosened the centre bolt and done the tapping etc to loosen it, its still solid.

As its a very pretty bike and carbon, obviously I don't want to go bashing it so, any tips for removal ?
Ps, done the tapping from underneath rails etc, no joy.

"Integrated" seat posts come off/out :shock:
I thought they were part of the frame :shock:
is taking off/out the seat post the same thing as taking off the wheels?

seriously though.. tap it lightly down to break the seal, maybe even grease it a bit first. Slowly wiggle it back up.

Tapped it. Up and down.
It is adjustable on the 928SL with carbon spacer but solid.
Can't grease what I can't remove !
