Brompton seatpost minimum insertion?
My wife's shiny red Brompton arrived today.
The bike rides beautifully. It is in very clean condition, with a nice clickety-clickety
Sachs 3-speed hub offering a fairly wide gear range.
There's no minimum insertion point marked on the (31.8mm Ø) seat-post, which is about 50cm long (not counting the narrow section at the seat end) and there's about 9cm of post inside the seat-tube when the post is lifted out to its maximum extension and the flared end catches. Will that insertion depth do?
