Brompton rear rack luggage options

So I'm looking for luggage options for the rear rack on my Brompton. All I can find is the "Rack Sack." That's everything. It's hard to believe Brompton would be so short sighted as to design the...

Thanks for replying, PCB. You're a good man. I've got some hits on Amazon, but details on size are scarce and manufacturer is unknown. The fixie shop down the street had some, but the finish looked...

Looking for nice polished silver spacers 1 1/8

Not quite vintage, but my Surly Cross Check got rammed by a BMV SUV the other week. It was her fault. She didn't even have a license. So I got 450$ to rebuild or replace the handlebars, stem, fork,...

Be very careful riding long distances with numbed genitalia. I thought I could just power through some discomfort, but the numbing fooled me. I damaged my perineum badly and have been off the bike...

Serious question. Taint damage. What do? Tour soon.

So I just realized I've been riding on a busted Brooks Flyer all summer. I've been angling it up and down by slight degrees unable to find a comfortable position. I thought tilting it up would...

My only option is a 52t instead of the 55t. The 55t gives a gear range of 32" to 85". That's pretty damn wide. I'm just going to keep it. Going to a 52 would cause me to lose 5 gear inches on the...

I'm also planning to change the front ring. Right now it's a 55. I think a double crankset is impossible and likely expensive. I want exactly what the mega-range does, a lower low and higher high,...

Will this Acera RD (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=38673) work on a Tern Link D8 frame? I might buy it from my friend, but I need to know that it's compatible before buying...

nah, my saddle is well worn and not new looking one bit. I've tilted the nose up one click more and that feels okay on my taint and better on my hands, still a little painful. The next step will be...

Actually, the saddle nose tilt may have been part of the problem. As my friend said, "Don't forget the angle of the dangle.

It hurts in every position. Bad on the tops, but tolerable. Worse on the hoods. Worst in the drops! So my suspicion is that either the handlebar isn't suited to my handlebar/saddle height ratio or...

Yea, the saddle is already tilted up a bit. My sit bones sit squarely on the body of the saddle while sparing my taint from the nose's upward protrusion, so it's pretty comfortable as is. I think...
