The Shimano Nexus 3-speed gear hub in combination with the torque measurement sensor gives you up to 45km bike power on a single charge. It also has a trip computer can connect to your smartphones via their special app and is–of course–foldable.

Possibility to extend the seatpost/use a different one?

Hi there! I really love this bike but I am 1.87 tall. I see no problem making the handlebar higher by using an extender or fitting some higher handlebars (BMX) style. The problem is the seat height. Is there some sort of adapter to raise the seat height or can one fit a longer seat post similar to the Brompton bikes?.

Many thanks.;-)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Jimm,

Your post is over 2 years old now, so I assume that you have found a fix for your seatpost issue already.

To get a longer seatpost, you need the seatpost from the international version of the qicycle, which is longer.

Note for other Qicycle EF1 owners, the seatpost design is unique and proprietary. This is because the seatpost is not perfectly round, there is a indent. Therefore, it is not able to use other seatpost replacements (as shown in the teardown).
