I was adjusting the seat on my Dahon Vitesse D8 when the seatpost quick release simply fell off (yellow piece in the images I supply)
The piece that bends to stop the seat from moving came off attached to the seatpost too.
I'm not so good at these things. No matter what combination I try there are always two issues (even when I successfully get the seat to lock in place)
- The seatpost is constantly rotating (as opposed to completely locked in)
- I can't pick up the bike by the seat, even though it's locked so it can't move down, it always freely comes up when I try to pick it up.
Here is a small gallery of images with my issue:
I've tried all sorts of variations and cannot get the the seatpost to lock in place properly...
Any help would be great! I've tried downloading the manual for this bike, but no where are these pieces mentioned or even an assembly guide.
