Brompton (folding bike) safety issue
I'll pass on a link from Brompton (UK) re a known issue of their handlebars. This only affects older Bromptons.
This is actually old news.
I don't know why Brompton hasn't gone to a flat bar like Dahon. It's a sit up and prey position that's not very comfortable. For a $1000.00 dollar 3 speed folding bike, you would expect better quality. Still. I'm glad they rectified the problem.
The bar shape is part of the folding jigsaw.
This may be old news to you guys, but a Brompton dealer close by (in 's-Hertogenbosch, a large city here in Holland) was unaware of the recall. He told me he would call me back the next day ... nothing.
I faxed the Dutch distributor ... nothing, no response. I called Brompton in the UK, gave them my frame number and they will send me something via the post. I only learned about last week. I was never notified by anyone.
