The seat post moved easily, fortunately, so I regreased the post, dismantled all seat parts to perform a thorough cleaning. The clamps, screws, and rocker piece were pretty grimy.

I presume this will allow more fore and aft movement and could prove invaluable for whatever bar set-up I use.

In addition to steering changes, I plan to add front rack and basket. All in good time.
