If you saw my last post, you’d know that I had a rusty and stuck seat post fall down into my old bridgestone kabuki that I recently purchased to fix up. After a long wd40 bath and a few nice whacks with a hammer, I had both pieces of the quill stem out. The last picture is everything put together and polished up. The second picture is another kabuki showing my work on removing rust on one half of the bars.

After letting some oil soak into this old quill style seat post on a Kabuki Submariner, I got the top bolt off fairly easily after smacking the top with a hammer until the corrosion broke. Then, the post still wouldn’t budge, so I kept hitting it down to loosen it more. All of a sudden, the post went flying down the tube. It was pretty awesome.

I recreated part of Broad St. (Philly) in Little Big Planet

http://lbp.me/v/k8s2qj

Check it out! You get to ride your road bike down South Broad St. as I’ve done many a time. For my first level, I must say it’s not too shabby! Before it’s complete though, I want to add the Kimmel Center, UArts Hamilton Hall, and then City Hall which will be at the end. Is there anything else you’d like to see? Or maybe you LBP pros have some level creation tips?
