    An alternative to filling zip ties through the Brompton block would be to use U bolts and a metal plate:

    The Tern P20 doesn't offer a higher development than the six-speed Brompton (both about 7.5m), but it's faster to start because it has no internal gear hub (less weight on the back; less friction)...

    It's strange that Peugeot allows this but doesn't sell them anywhere else.

    I'll investigate further about adding a second chainring.

    As an alternative, what about removing the 17T sprocket from the eight-speed Shimano CS-HG50-8I cassette (11-13-15-17-20-23-26-30) and adding a 42T sprocket to lower development to 1.8m?

    Thanks for the feedback. The reason I was thinking of adding a second, 34T chainring is that it's been done before:

    Nope, no problem at all. The handlebar is high enough and the brake/derailleur cables don't get in the way.

    Found nothing when searching for "2030 cassette" on SRAM's site.

    Or maybe there's a link between "2030" and PG-1050/PG-1070?

    Hello

    Even after moving forward the saddle as far as I can, I find the handlebar a bit too far. It's OK for short rides in the city, but my arms/hands hurt when going for day-long rides:
