I test-rode a Brompton a month ago and now I'm looking to buy. I am 6'0" (1.83m) and found the standard seatpost an inch or two too short for my legs. However, that was with the standard foam seat and not the Brooks saddle I will certainly prefer. It is my understanding that a real saddle will stand an inch or two higher on this bike, which may put this on the cusp of being ridable without needing the extended post. Does anyone have any ideas how well that might work? I don't think I will be able to find such a bike to test-ride here in Calgary, but I'd be willing to give it a shot if one of you has one!
(This is my first post. I hope it is appropriate in tone and content for this forum.)
