With the British pound down, is it a good time to buy a Brompton?

Just did a google search and all I came up with is US sellers. How can I get British sellers?

So just hook up another wire to another part of the frame? Does it matter if it's the front fork? That would be closer. Also, my bike is aluminum not steel. Should that matter to ground...

Thanks, Bruce. Looks good. I'm not really handy with a wrench so I would probably get my LBS guy to so this.(I can fix flats and do tune ups, that's it!). So I would think it would take: new hub,...

Anyone swap out an IGH to a FS bike?

I have an old 8fs. I understand the dropouts are 135mm. In addition, I own a IGH downtube with a Sturmey Archer XFR, I think. This has 110mm dropouts. I've...

There is a seller locally that is selling one of these ebikes. Says it has been sitting for a while and the battery doesn't hold a charge. Probably needs a new battery. Doesn't look too bad in the...

I prefer the Zefal spin. Kinda small sized but it folds in, which helps when you fold/unfold the brommie.

In Washington, DC a gas motor scooter (vespa style) or gas moped do not have to get a license or anything. However, I don't see them on sidewalks or anything.
