    Hi,
    I am currently using some milianparts on my brommie, like the superb dolly leather grips (100% pure sheep leather) that matches colour with a brown brooks seat so great!
    Very well finished products as Girona says.
    I guess they have a brand new online shop btw.
    Cheers

    Height marks, very nice. Why "low friction" is a feature? I would think that high friction prevents slippage.
    Happier than a camel on wednesday.

    To make it easier to slide in when folding the bike??
    Not sure, but regular old chromed steel is quite low friction as well.
    The aluminum seatpost in my Dahon has developed wear on it, making it darker and also making it dirty. It will stain your hand if you grab the seatpost in that area. Maybe this "low friction black chrome" prevents this?

    Hello,
    Low friction is to prevent the chrome to peel or wear off. Some seat pillars are painted and they will be scratched after some use, this doesn't happen with black chrome. It doesn't affect slippage either.

    My mods are really few and limited but I am working on it. I started with a M6L, took out the mudguards and changed the original handlebar with a low rise one. Replaced green labeled tyres with a pair of Kojak. Now I am waiting for a bullhorn handlebar type arriving from the US.
