    it has a 305 rim ( for something like a 16 x 2.00 tire or thinner tire like a 20 x 1.5 )
    OLD ( over locknut dimension is 132 mm ) will fit 130 mm frame spacing

    Hi, thanks for the information Brakemeister. I trying to track down the specs on the Brompton frame and I don't speak wrench, so is that a yes? or a conditional yes? Regards, Andy

    No ... not even close. Brompton dropout spacing is something in the ballpark of 112-116 mm. Maybe 120.

    And I suspect the brakes will have trouble with the smaller rim, too.

    Good catch RHM. I forgot abut the ERTO 349 and 305 differences.
