I think it was a wise choice not to buy the frame. I bet that'd be really hard to remove. I think the praxis type adapters are much better which expand as you tighten them.

I had the adapter remove out one of my frames with cold temp, I left it outside over night, as opposite from heat that make the alloy expand the cold I guess make it contract a bit and when tapped with the mallet the adapter broke free, also the amount of 609 used wasn’t much so that may help too

I didn't buy it because of the adapter. The seller wasn't interested of selling seems.

The adapter is kind of a weakness to me, but to the seller it's probably working perfectly, so couldn't see eye to eye here.

Good idea with the cold. That would probably help. Pity I can't fit the bike in the freezer and winter is almost over. :lol:
