    Bontrager seat post angle adustment? It won't budge.

    Got me new Superfly 100 and trying to get it set up to ride. The seat angle is way off, pointing up and the compression fittings that set the angle will not move even after the seat is completely off. Bontrager instructions say to loosen bolts and then try tilting seat while pressing down on the seat. These things won't budge. I'd taking it back to the shop tomorrow but if someone knows a trick it might save me a trip.

    Thanks.

    Take the whole thing apart: Remove the outer clampy parts and bolts/spring, if the round wedge pieces don't pull right out, carefully tap them out via the bolt holes. You'll want something thin but blunt ended. CAREFULLY. Tiny bit of grease on the wedges, put it back together.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    I kind of was starting along this path just hate tapping on carbon fiber but I'll look around for the right tool and give it another try. Thanks.
