I wonder if it's possible to get hold of Flamingo spare parts. . . I've just built a 5 speed wheel and will soon be putting in on my Brompton but I know I'm going to wish I had a grip shifter, and it looks probably impossible to fit one on the M handlebar. It might just about work if if the shifter were cut down a little. . . probably the grip area would end up too cramped. But a Flamingo handlebar would do the job.

Unless there's a way of extending the M handlebar with an end plug that protrudes 10mm or so and is the same diameter as the bar?

chemeleon26, if you're still on these forums, how's the bike working for you now? Are you still riding it? How's it holding up mechanically? The more I look at this thing the more I think I'd prefer it to my brompton, they've reduced the rake on the fork so steering should be better and the ahead stem ought to take a milimeter or two of flex out of the handlebars.
