    Limited Edition Brompton 10 Speed!

    I just found this:

    http://www.loro.co.jp/10th/m10l.html

    Looks nice! Too bad I can't afford it, haha.
    Why buy 10 cheap bikes when one nice one will last longer!

    Thanks for the translation, but...
    One 5 speed hub and one rear sprocket is 5 speed. So two front chain rings. That is not usual on a Brompton.
    (Steve Parry did it, so I've heard).

    EvilV has a Parry™ front derailleur clamp and twin chainset [2x3=6speed]on his Merc I believe.
    I think the five speed might be a Sturmey 5?
