Switching From an M to a P Type Handlebar - Where did I go Wrong?
I had originally purchased an M6L Brompton. A couple of weeks later, I decided to add a P handlebar (I liked the different riding position options after trying out a friends) and a rack since its a lot easier to roll around.
Swapped the handlebar, cables and added the rack. Here are where my two issues lie.
1. I assumed the cabling(brakes,derailer,hub) for an M type bike is the same as a P type. Im guessing im wrong cuz I cant fold the handlebar stem. The cables are not long enough/snug
2. After adding the rack, there is a huge space between the seat pillar and the lower stop disk.
The gap between the LSD and the seat pillar is supposed to be about 1mm. Do I need to add more washers to lessen the gap?
Please help. Any tips suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance guys.
