Is the seatpost of the TIKIT really tight when folding down ?
to anyone who has a tikit can you tell me if it is normal for the seatpost to be tight when folding down ? i just want to make sure that this is normal on tikit. i attempted to add the support upgrade on my seatpost but decided to remove it as it made the seatpost rub the frame real hard. so hard that the frame paint is peeling. also i attached a picture of what happened to the cylinder support when i tried to slide it out so that i can attach the upgrade support in between the black and blue painted support. as you can see from the picture that cylinder (silver color) is all hammered out since it was so tight (real tight) and i practically had to hammer it real hard. even when i loosened all the screws.
