Posting this for just the first one, which is definitely worth remembering. The rest not so much.

At least now I know what a "hack" is. It''s jury-rigging. But hack has only one syllable, so I like it....more efficient.
I found all the hacks to at least be entertaining.

Been waiting to raise my seat post for a week or so but it was stuck. It wouldn't go up or even down with my phat ass on it. :shock:
It took my two boys and I to do the twist & shout (cussing actually ) and get it to finally move. Dropper post in carbon frame and I had some carbon paste when last inserted.
For those who setup the seatpost and leave it, you might want to make sure it's not stuck by moving it every once in a while.
