    seat post questions

    Can someone tell me what the two holes are on the bottom of the seat post? I can't lower the seat anymore and was thinking of using a hacksaw to shorten the post at the first Hole. Any thoughts?

    The holes are there to shed some grams. You can shorten the post just make sure that there is post material at the minimum insert hole on in the seat tube.

    pictures to be sure

    I want to make sure we are talking about the same holes. This is my first attempt to put pictures in a message board so my apologies if something went wrong. So I think I will be good if I cut the bottom hole off. I think I only need about 1.5 inches. There is a line on the post that says minimum and maximum.

    If you use a pipe cutter, the cut will be cleaner. Anyway, if you hack it, make sure you file down the outside rough edges of the cut before you place the seat post back into the frame.
