Subject: [CR] crushed Medici seat tube

Folks, yesterday a beautiful Medici Pro Strada came into the shop. Looked like an early 80's build. As I was talking with the woman riding it, she mentioned that she couldn't lower the seat post. Looking it over, I discovered that some ham fisted neanderthal had installed a rear rack that was designed for a seat post installation, but had installed it on the seat tube instead and had tightened the bolts SO TIGHT that the seat tube was crushed. Oh the pain!!!! Oh the shame!!!

So sad.
