    Just curious... What is it about kick-back brakes you don't like? (I installed an Automatix on my spare Ti Swift with coaster brake. I am loving it.)

    Bruce, I just noticed the rear fork ends were changed as well. How did you do those?

    I have been considering this... How about polishing and then clear powder coated? The brazing would show up really nice.

    The difference between the calculators come from tyre size. Calculating the circumference of the wheel with inflated tyre is somewhat inexact. My personal favourite method is to take the rim bead...

    The Sheldonbrown calculator is accurate, you can trust it. Highly likely, the bike's specs are wrong somewhere.

    Perhaps a simpler approach is to put a chainring set of 53/39T.

    Wow I am impressed.

    I think the 406mm Ti Swift frame will also take those extra-fat tyres.

    Comparing a bf to a Brompton based on the derailer is not the brightest of moves. If the derailer is a very important aspect to you, then don't look at the Brompton. Mine works very well but it is...

    The tensioner pulley that is fixed, ie not the one on the swing arm, can that move sideways freely? Take the chain off and see if the fixed pulley has sideways freedom. Maybe take the whole tensioner...

    I haven't done the Brommie often at all on my work commute, but I think the Ti Swift is about 10% faster. I will try it out a few times this week, Friday at least, to see.
