No, it's a lovely clean break in the middle of the bone. Apparently about 80%(or some other large percentage) just pull together and knit, and it's all lovely. I'm in the unlucky minority, where it...

Well, yes and no. The bike needs new cables and quite a bit of TLC, but should be roadworthy next week or so.

As for me, I was back on the road in March, but my clavicle never mended. It's...

I'm still mystified by the whole thing. Bromptons have become ridiculously common in London; I've seen commuter traffic where they were more than half the bikes going by. If someone was going to...

I've put 16,000+km on my folder, mostly in london. I get comments occasionally, but it's pretty rare, not enough to be a problem. I think you are being oversensitive.

I've got over 5,000km on MKS FD-7 Folding, and they aren't showing signs of wear yet. Not floppy in anyway, though I am not the most powerful cyclist.

turns out the mezzo wasn't going to take this lying down. First ride after the above postings, it threw me off. The front wheel came out of its quick release, and now I have a broken clavicle. Bugger.
