I'm able to raise and lower the seatpost (which I don't do often, the majority of my folding is done as per the last picture so it can be stored in a small corner of the service area when we get busy) without problem. Yeah, it'll knock out the piece of inner tube out sometime, so I just push it back in. I think that says how tight it is - my intention was to not have to listen to it rattling while I rode, which is daily bank runs for the business. And without the inner tube, there was a slight rattle (I'm a perfectionist). The entire setup is a lot more solid than I expected. The rack mounts on the dropouts are threaded, of course, but I added nuts behind so I could really tighten it down without worrying about stripping the dropout points.
