Brompton seat position

Hi,

I have a Brompton with the telescopic pillar and a Brooks seat. When riding my body always tries to move slightly further back, but moving the seat as further back as possible was not enough. I also realized I probably could do without the telescopic pillar, and use an extended one instead (I am 1.88m). I have read about rotating the extended pillar to gain a bit of distance between seat and handlebars.

How much can I hope to get this way? Any other way of making my ride a bit more comfortable?

Thanks


Iago

If you're talking about the saddle adapter pin, then you can expect 1" - 2" of extra distance.
