What are the tires on this Brompton?
Brompton on eBay.
Who makes the tires, please? They're listed on the spec sheet as the Greens.

Wow, that is one beautifully tricked out Brompton. I wonder how it fold with the direct pull brakes. It sure looks lovely with those components - I wonder if it has a Ti back end
About the tires, they are bullet proof. I have the same tires on my Brompton and have yet to suffer a flat since I got the bike here in NYC.
I was wondering who makes them? Are they Primos? No, they have a reflective wall.

Looking at the big photos on the flickr pages linked from the auction, the rear frame and forks aren't Ti - you can see the gold/brass brazing around the joints. I guess it'd be pretty hard to add v-brake bosses to Ti parts unless you know someone that can source/ fabricate and then weld on the parts.
Always nice to see a nicely modded B - It looks sweet with those low-angle riser bars and aeroheat rims...
Low gearing though. Spin much?
PS - 'Greens' are made directly for Brompton by an undisclosed supplier.
