    Cut seatpost? Buy shorter seatpost?

    My wife's seat sits about an inch higher then she would like, can I cut the seat post shorter or do I need to buy a shorter seat post?

    You can cut the tube (assuming metal seattube), just remember that the minimum insertion markings will be off the amount you cut. Use a pipecutter for a relatively clean cut, then clean up with a file.
