    I don't know, but a question that pops up when people ask how much a Brompton costs, is why spend so much more on a folder when cheaper alternatives are available. This is also true for Dahon, Tern,...

    So a priori, there is no technical reason as to why they would ride 100km/day + hills instead of installing a IGH that's sturdy enough to withstand that much work?
  7. IGH instead of single-speed for messengers?

    Hello

    This is a newbie question.

    I see a lot of bike messengers riding single-speed bikes.

    I could understand that they find derailleurs either not strong enough for intensive, daily use,...

    It's actually made by Radical Design, the same Dutch company that designes and manufactures the bags sold under the Brompton brand.

    The Roltoptas is a bit bigger than the T-Bag.

    An enhanced T-Bag is available, the Roltoptas (200€).

    If you still need a bit more, you can hang a saddle bag, eg.

    I'll piggy-back on this thread to check if there are other brands besides Revelate that I should know about that can carry 10-20 liters (or 3-4kg).

    Thank you.

    What makes a Brooks saddle comfortable for long rides?

    The fact that leather will stretch and fit your butt after a while?

    Yes, it's the Alfine 11's other weak point (besides leaking oil).

    I removed the rear wheel this week-end, and since I put it back, the cable barely moves between speeds 10 and 11, which means I...

    If Brompton could do something to improve their bikes, it'd be offering disk brakes as an option.

    This is a commuter bike, and rim pads don't work as well in the rain.
