I'll add a link though I can't attest that there are not other, more complete, collections around. The information might be a little dated as well, but still worth looking through. Anyway, when I had a Brompton (foreshadowing here...) I learned a great deal from reading the Brompton list archives and the FAQ, which I found here...

http://listen.to/Brompton-Talk

The foreshadowing part is I am about to rejoin the Brompton owners of the world. I ordered an M6L and it should be here maybe sometime next week.

I am indeed psyched, excited, jazzed! It will be great to be back among the folders...

This is another feature added to the official Brompton Web site recently. You could register your own username & password to post stories/photos of your Brompton, get news, and other things. While it is not an ongoing forum per se, it is still something I use for my own information gathering on Brompton and it's issues. Here is the page addresses:
