The fit for the saddle is tight. We replaced the stock saddle with a bit bulkier one and we need to orient the saddle very specifically to make it fit within the case, while not taking the seatpost out. I can imagine that a still bulkier saddle might force one to take the seatpost out. The position of the saddle relative to the seatpost might matter too.
To provide further detail, our Brompton is equipped with a rear rack and a U-lock is attached to the frame. In my memory, we might not even have to take off that U-lock to make the bike fit. My overall impression though is that the specific case was adapted for Brompton rather than designed for Brompton from scratch.
