    Doh I just noticed the "Big Apple" logo. Thanks. I'm using a crappy $300 laptop if that counts as an excuse. :crash:

    Thanks.

    I'm just kinda getting conflicting information from the net - possibly due to changes over time as sometimes articles aren't dated (a HUGE pet peeve of mine).

    Has anyone used Big Apples on their...

    Which wheels are better overall? The 16" for weight-savings, 18" for ride smoothness. I'm not looking for speed and right now I'm thinking of going with the 18x1.5 Marathon Racers.

    How much...

    Very much an issue of want :) The Brompton is the ultimate multi-modal urban commuter while the full-sus Giant MTB is built to handle everything else. I like to think the Birdy would be my...

    Resurrecting this thread because I have a Brompton and am now aiming for a Birdy. Interesting to hear some of the comments - even if they're 3 years old - comparing the two bikes which simply...

    Yes a QR rear adaptor for a bag/basket, essentially.

    Somehow in my head I was imaging using the Brompton rack with a snap-on basket (via Klickfix or a modified carrier block or similar). It certainly makes sense since a quick on/off system would...

    I wouldn't want to load too much on the seatpost as I'm using a Ti post, so the rack would definitely be more useful. However, I guess there's no Brompton-specific solutions out there so a generic...

    Not 100% sure what you mean, but I'm looking for a rear rack adaptor. Thanks but I'm just contemplating the possibilities right now.

    Turns out I've been to both - my wife's house is not too far from Carlton North and I've purchased stuff from them earlier this year. Solid customer service.

    Thanks, I'll definitely check it out - my doctor's office is in Richmond as well, conveniently.

    I've kinda noticed - unfortunately in Melbourne everything has shot up since I've studied here in the late 90s to early 00s. Food, petrol, parking rates - it's just nuts. I've learned to expect to...
  13. To Jur - good and reasonably priced LBS in Melbourne?

    I'm just visiting for a short period, but are there any good and helpful LBS here you would highly recommend? Notably for bike supplies.

    I've read some of your Birdy thread with interest as I'm...

    I suspect the CarryMe was never meant to run over anything more troubling than hairline cracks in the pavement, as any significant blemishes on the path will likely throw the rider off first before...

    And that would be a not-so-distant second - in fact, I just saw it at the same shop I was browsing for the Klickfix yesterday. I would have preferred the Carry Freedom City, but I suspect they've...

    I do have it :) I'm just being greedy by wanting to do 2 weeks worth of grocery shopping rather than 1.

    Misery loves company!

    I'm currently planning to add two new bikes within the next year to my stable of 2 - not sure I'll ever get out of the planning stages, but it's fun to dream :)

    Thanks I don't use the extended post so I might have to go with the regular Freerack. Nice concept but 10kg just seems a little limiting for basket+groceries...
  19. Klickfix Rear Adaptor (or similar) for a Brompton?

    Does such a thing exist and if so, does it work without affecting the roll? Thought it would make sense for a basket to mounted on the rear rack when I do need it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the answers guys - I believe from your perspectives that this may be the correct size after all. I guess I'm just used to regular jackets but "Profit" is supposed to be the most...

    Thanks for the insight.

    The front "feels" a little short by my inexperienced estimation - I'm trying to decide if it's too short and I will need to exchange to an L, or has it simply been designed...
  22. My first cycling jacket - weird fit or normal?

    My wife ordered online the "Louis Garneau X-lite Jacket (Medium)" for my birthday, it is generally form-fitting but one area in particular concerns me.

    I'm about 5'7/150lbs (smallish built) but...

    I don't want to get anyone into trouble, so I'm still not going to mention names.

    I simply requested the dealer to send it to a US address where a freight forwarder would do the rest. I'm not...

    I have the B17, B72 and B67 and I must say the B67 trumps them all IMO. Especially if you enjoy the upright riding position. I think many here prefer the slightly more forward S-type posture, so the...
