Using the telescopic seat pillar:
Probably you will find that for normal daily folding it is easiest to lower only the main tube and to leave the
upper tube SPTTOP clamped in its extended, riding position: the SPTTOP and saddle would only be lowered
on occasions when maximum compactness is needed.
As a general rule, it is better to raise and lower the SPTTOP when the main pillar is up (if you try and move it
with the main pillar down, you may also have to release the clamp SCQRA on the main frame to permit free
Never ride the bicycle with the upper seat pillar SPTTOP extended so high that the minimum insertion mark
on it is visible. Also, remember that, with your saddle higher, there is more overhung load at the base of the
seat pillar and consequently more stress in the main frame than normal: you are advised to take some of your
weight off the saddle on rough roads or when, for instance, riding off a curb.
Finally, if you remove the upper tube for any reason, on re-assembly, take care (as you insert it into the top of
the main tube) not to damage the plastic sleeve in the main tube.
