So I have done some stupid things before...but nothing as dumb and absent minded while biking as pulling my seatpost out a little too far without checking how much was still in the seat tube!
(note: the first picture has the seatpost looking like it was plenty deep, but I simply moved the broken piece up the post while I rode down after the incident)
After searching around for a month or two for bike builders that could fix it I found somebody who could. Sherwood over at Ventana took the frame, cut out the seat post and replaced it with a brand new seat post of the same 7005 alloy. After welding it all back together it was heat treated and powdercoated Grinch Green! I got the frame back and slowly started building it up with some new parts and some old parts. Really stoked on how it turned out and once my broken ankle heals I'll be happy to take it to the trails instead of just riding it around the court.
Still making the final version of the bulldog headbadge and then getting it powdercoated blue!
