LightSKIN's incredible design

The standard length LightSKIN is exactly the length of a standard Brompton seat post. The telescopic upper replaces the upper portion of Brompton's telescopic seat post. If you also need the lower part, you can buy it here.

Note on installation: You'll probably need to tighten up your seat post clamp a bit when using this post as the diameter is just slightly different than an LightSKIN videooriginal seat post. Use a 10mm wrench to tighten/loosen the bolt an 1/8th turn at a time. Test the post by grabbing the seat and trying to twist it to the side with the clamp engaged. If it slips, go a little tighter. If it doesn't slip but it is too hard to close the clamp, go a little looser.
