numb hands

I plan to raise my bars an inch or two to see if that helps. As is my hands go numb after a mile or two. Anyway, other than raising the stem what other things are good for eliminating numb hands?

Is there a website somewhere that lets you build and rebuild Bromptons, selecting different options as you go and then see what the final price would be?

At the risk of sounding cliche, they just don't make them like that any more. I've got a '70's Raleigh that is so much nicer than anything selling today, just like yours. Congrats.

Does it expire? If not, I'd go along with save it until a true need presents itself rather than use it just to use it. That pretty much guarantees Murphy will do something to your bike or your...
