[Schlumpf Questions] Owners Manual

sorry for the multiple posts on related subjects, but i figured people
using the search facility in the future might find things easier.

Does anyone have a Schlumpf Owners Manual that they wouldn't mind
copying/scanning for me? I bought mine second hand and it came
manualless :( I'm sure a lot of it would be fairly obvious stuff, but
the two main points that I worry about is adjusting the seat post (I
know Joe Marshals frame was written off because of the complexity of
this), and re-oiling the hub. I have 2 syringes of oil, but have no
idea how often or how much they will be needed.

I have the info about changing cranks from the SchlumpfDrive pdf file,
so at least that side of things seem well covered.

Well the "manual" that came with mine was just a sheet of paper. I don't
have access to a scanner at the moment, but I can type what it says
about adjusting the seat height (complete with typos).

The way I interpret the above is to tighten the outer screws first until
there is the tiniest resistance, then tighten the inner screws next
until there is the tiniest resistance, then return to the outer screws
and tighten them some more, then the inner screws and tighten them to
the same torque. Finally I tighten the outer screws firmly and then the
inner screws firmly.

It's as if you have to tighten all the screws to gradually increasing
torque, first outside, then inside, with two or three passes.

Unfortunately the sheet of paper I have doesn't say anything about
re-oiling.
