How To Remove Seatpost

My seatpost was seized in my Hollands. I recently discovered this when I switched out my Selle Alpine DSA saddle for a Ti Flite. Went to raise the saddle and it wasn’t having it. Typically I’m a grease-obsessed guy. I’ve argued with Tom and Tony extensively about greasing the barclamp on quill stems and I’ll slab it on just about everything that moves (except the tapers on bottom brackets). That being said, I was a bit upset… After taking it to Affinity and dousing it with Liquid Wrench, it was time to put it in the vice. That’s my brother helping me out. What a way to spend your NYC vacation!
