If you want other measurements just ask.
Could I ask you to look and see if you feel there is 12-15 cm of additional forward adjustment available on the pads.
I'm have a very long torso and don't want to be at the absolute end of the bar adjustments.
Have you posted a pic of your bike?
Word of advice, when you put it back together, be careful not to over tighten the seatpost bolts. I snapped one and now it's stuck in the frame...
This is a very strange coincidence as I just searched for a shiv forum to ask about the same issue with the seatpost not moving. My Shiv Expert is only a couple of months old and was set up in a Specialized shop. They did a great job setting it up with the measurements but the other day I decided to raise my seat slightly and couldn’t budge it an inch. I managed to push it in further (in trying to get some movement in it) but regardless of what I’ve tried it will not move at all.
When I had a closer look at the assembly manual http://service.specialized.com/...nstruction-Guide.pdf
; page 20) it states that a "shim and top cap" should be installed at the front of the post, as well as the collar at the back.
On my Shiv there is no shim or topcap (only the collar at the back) and it looks like its the front of the post where the jam is occurring. Hopefully you can see from the pic that the symbol paint has been rubbed off where the post has met the frame where the shim should be. Does anyone else have this fitted on their Shiv?
Here is the link to some pics I put in another forum about this: http://www.bikeradar.com/...2973500&start=20
Perhaps I've got this all wrong, but i'm thinking it has been set up properly at the store. I'm taking it in this weekend so will find out.
My felt AR2 (old model) had a stuck seatpost. I managed to hit it down but it couldn't come back up!
Took me ages, I ended up taking the seatpost clamp off and it still wouldn't budge so I lubed it up using some WD40
Took a mallet and whacked my saddle from the bottom up and it eventually budged back up. Then put a little silicon grease on the post. Was a total pain in the arse
Swim with swimmers, bike with cyclists, run with runners. Train with those who are hard to keep up with. Soon you will be hard to keep up with.
That changes everything. Now I actually have decent room for my Garmin 510 out front. Before it was so far out towards the grip I couldn't get a good grip on my bars. Totally have a ton of room now.
I've been trying and trying to get the fuesalage into the frame and it just won't go in smoothly. It gets stuck and bent and folded up, then won't hold as much water and is difficult to fill or drink from because it's all bent up inside the frame. I simply can NOT get it through the little hole and into the small frame without problems. I'm about to give up and just use a bottle system, but I'm hoping I missed something?
