    I just stop and pretend to rummage around my pockets like I'm looking for something. They get the message pretty quickly. Just don't make eye contact.

    Can't speak for that particular bag, but the B132B I have is great. Never given me any problems for the 4 flights I've used it on.

    It never quite crossed my mind to ask Brompton directly for some reason... guess I'll give them a try.

  6. Brompton cog+chain tensioner problem (2-speed)

    So I installed my new chain and it was working fine for an hour. After that the chain started skipping on the 1st gear, but worked perfectly on the 2nd gear.

    When I got home, I fiddled around with...

    Plenty of choices for 3rd party handlebars... just make sure you get 25.4mm ones. Also the length of the cables are done to a pretty narrow margin of error, so make sure you account for that if you...

    Nice I had a 28H Automatix installed on my Dahon Uno and you're right - the shift point is wayyy too low. What is the current weight of yr Swift?

    The bottom line is: try them all. P for versatility but increased weight, S for racing posture and weight savings, M/H if you prefer a more relaxed, upright riding posture.

    I have an M-type, H-type and S-type (gotten in roughly that order). My wife and I mostly do casual short-range (5-10km) riding on them.

    Thanks so much for the answers... the reason would be three-fold, and normally I wouldn't get it but it just seems like a fortunate coincidence.

  16. 3/32" 11-speed KMC chain on a 2-speed Brompton?

    Will it fit okay? I'm guessing purely from the 3/32" it should though I guess an 11-speed chain should be pretty darn narrow. Thanks for any advice.
