A company called Kinetics, based in Scotland, are offering a Brompton with 8 speed hub for an additonal £200 on the a la carte menu.
I have 2 downtubes but need a compact folder sometimes. I'm very tempted to opt for a front hub dymamo and the 8 speed rear hub option in raw lacquer, gorgeous finish. Yes these are expensive options but i can get them on the UK cycle to work scheme and get 40% tax relief. Are these mad options? Opinions and advice welcome.
