The Cruiser is Alive, mostly
This bike is ridable if the seat height is exactly what you need, because the seatpost is stuck.
I've sprayed WD40 in the seat tube several times, but it hasn't budged. Today, I bought a can of Liquid Wrench. I've sprayed that in there a couple times today. The seat post hasn't budged yet.
Do you have any recommendations for a next step? I'm trying to do the least damage to the frame as possible. I think the last resort will be to heat the seat tube with a torch. I'm looking for recommendations for "in-between" steps.
The photo does not show it, but the seat tube is slotted in the front and back. This makes a nice entry point for the Liquid Wrench, I hope.
