    Well, it has arrived! It is all together and looks stunning :eek: but
    there is one problem... One major problem.

    The seatpost is too long, way too long. I have to go to my LBS and get
    it cut down, but I dont have a car and I am waiting for someone with
    one to get home and give me a ride. The seat post is currently up to my
    upper chest, and sticks almost a foot out of the end of the frame :eek:
    !

    More waiting... But now im going to see if my Norco post will fit into
    it. The norco saddle sucks, but its better than nothing! I managed to
    get on it and I was really high. I could easly touch a 8 foot high
    celing.... More waiting = less fun :(

  3. yeah just remember that it's better to have to much than to little.
    Make a few cuts so that you know exactly how long you want it rather
    than one guess cut.

    well, I did the stupid thing and took it to my LBS. They would not cut
    it there (despite the fact that it would only have took a minute or so)
    and now I wont have the thing till tomorow.

    If you want I could probably do it, I'm busy tommorrow but I could do it
    on sunday. Cutting a seatpost isn't hard at all, all you need is a pipe
    cutter, reciprocating or if you are barbaric you can use a hack saw.

    Although it's not a huge issue with the dx due to the closed bottom,
    don't forget to file down the edges and the INSIDE edges of the cut
    tube as they will scratch up the inside of the frame and make it more
    likely to corrode.
