    Hi,
    Yes but I think part of it (the closing lids) is not Alfine. It depends on what crank wheel the screws have to be modified.
    It is not so easy. I can ask the shop exactly what is to be done if you are interested.

    cheers

    the words used are confusing, as being vague, IDK what you are meaning,
    so I'll let it go.. maybe the term in Spanish thru a different translation scheme would be clearer.

    now if the Black finish has remained so for 12 years on those seat posts,
    then I may be worth the bother for some people.
    Black surface treatments in my experience wear off,
    so as to not be as attractive looking once in use a few years.

    Thank you for telling us. Is there a website?

    Edit: Found it. http://www.milianparts.com/en/

    I especially like the Dolly, supporting the rear mudgard and better mudgard roller wheel! Great site.

    Coatings on folding bike seatposts wear off after a few years. Brompton Ti posts change colour, Birdy Al posts lose their anodising.

    ALL foldingbike posts change, with scratches and so on. My three yr old folder w black seatpost has not changed much yet and when it does I`ll just give the affected area a light spray with a black paint every now and then. My scratched alu "silver coloured" post would need sanding to get rid of scratches.

    I responded to fietsbobs comment "Black surface treatments in my experience wear off". nothing in that sentence about seatposts specially.

    the websites were deleted cause it is not allowed to advertise, which I fully understand and accept.
    however I do not get any profit from this shop. i ve been told there will be an online shop in.a couple of weeks.
    cheers mate,

    My chromed steel seatpost hasn't changed appearance at all after several years' use. Hard anodised aluminium is quite abrasion-resistant but soft-anodised (including black and silver) aluminium wears quickly. Paint isn't a suitable coating for a seatpost, due to the resultant thickness.

    Black wears through to silver leaving a mottled finish. Obviously silver can only wear through to silver. I agree with fietsbob, with folding bike seat posts it makes more sense to go with silver anodized aluminium. Plastic shims are a lot kinder on seat post finishes.

    I dont Miss having a set of scale markings on my seat post.
    I pull the seat up to where it hits my hip bone on the outside.
    once it touches that spot, it's OK, when I jump on and pedal..

    That's the point, the black chrome won't wear off. It is not a paint, besides is a low friction treatment like the ones in.a suspension fork of a bike. Let's see if fietsbob is convinced now.

    OK, but its friction that holds up the seat post..
    The black chrome won't wear off
    show me one that has been used for 10 years..

    As an Aide; I have hard anodized Mavic rims, they began to stop better,
    after the anodizing wore through.. its only a few microns thick.

    Ah it's black chrome, is it? I have seen that stuff. Chrome does nor wear it is extremely hard. It may pick up scratches. Is black chrome plating black through0out, or is the black colour a surface treatment of the chrome to make it black?

    Let me clarify:
    It is black chrome, same treatment as bright chrome, hard and durable.
    it is not anodised, painted or coated, which wears off after certain use.
