I'll keep here all info on trying to get a proper fit for seat post and saddle on my Flamingo NX7.
I spoke to local bike shop in Canada about getting an extended seat post in aluminum or titanium. The mechanic said the Flamingo one is already quite long (470 mm). But according to my 'I know my body best' still at least 8 cm too short for a full leg extension.
I also wonder why (and more importantly how to deal with it) the Flamingo seatpost is so robust in width, remaining constant width, like a vacuum cleaner tibe, rather than the Brompton one, which correct md uf I am wrong, tapers at the end. Brompfication (Thailand) also tapers.
What are pros and cons if each design in functikn, cost, etc? Also, why does the Brompton come from the bottom up and the Flamingo the reverse?
