old Dahon - replacing telescopic seatpost?
I just picked up an old Dahon with a three-speed Sturmey Archer hub. The guy had duct-taped a too-small seatpost into the telescopic seatpost, which wasn't property tightened. I had to hammer it out of the seat tube and it looks bent. I took the bike for a ride this morning with the seat a bit low, but I'd like to replace the telescopic seatpost so I can get a proper position. Do you know if this part
It looks exactly the same. Or, would I be better going with a single long seatpost? Looking forward to spending more time on this little bike. It will be perfect for when I take the bus to visit my girlfriend so I can spend $2.50 on the bus instead of $8.50 on gas.
