And to be pedantic, then you do the loosening first, then the tightening, so in the example above, unscrew the back one first, then tighten the front one to bring the nose down.  If you try doing it the otherway it won't work andf you'll break either the saddle, the clamp, the allen key or your hand.  This would not be good.

'Hammer it with your tw@t' - haven't seen him for a few weeks and TBH he's not really big enough. A case of nut to crack a sledgehammer. Mind you if the nut was encased in a woodpecker...worth a shot I guess. I'll beg the question and then duck - so he's got a better chance of reaching my chin.

Not quite full of Xmas cheer yet am I?

As Yule were.

If none of the above suggestions work, you could use a pipe bender on the seat tube. I suggest one of these tools:

Mind you you may have to change the stem on your handlebars for a longer one as doing this may affect the position of the seat a bit.

I think this may not work quite so well if you have a carbon seat tube though. You may need a more comprehensive tool!

I have managed it now using the 2 nut principle, but as the seat post is straight, I can't fit my seat bag on anymore so that means I can't go out this weekend because I won't have my spare tubes, CO2 pump or multi tool with me.  Never mind.

don't you have any pockets on your jackets holly?

that is the worst excuse I've heard for not cycling, apart from that old 'it's cold and windy' one

The specialised micro mini seat bags are perfect for racing / training.  Space for 2 tubes, 2 cyclinders and a multitool, but don't catch on your thighs.

I do have pockets, but they are usually filled with malt loaf Debbo.  And I did cold, wet and windy last weekend.  Nice is going to be hot and sunny isn't it?  Hardly like for like training conditions!

come on Holly, don't let me down. I'll have spare tubes, CO2 pump and multi tool so you don't need them anyway

It could be cold in Nice, and if you squash the malt loaf tomorrow you can fit in whatever you need that Vix can't carry for you.

This typeface is awfully smalll now.... oh dear.

Plum, I'm confused.  I really don't want to ask what bit of the malt loaf between my thighs is keeping you awake.  I think I'd rather not know.  But no need to wonder anymore, VixLm carried the spares, I had maltloaf and gels in my pockets.

It isnt the malt loaf, it is the thighs dear..........
