    Put on the fattest tire that can fit for a more comfortable ride. I don't know the bike so I can't recommend which tire but others can chime in with other helpful advice.

    Spongy Wonder Saddle (Noseless)

    For the last eight months I have been unable to ride a bicycle because of epididymitis which then progressed to prostatitis.

    A few days ago I couldn't take not riding my bike anymore and decided...

    Couple of things. Could the 12 speed cog be 1/8th instead of 3/16s that your chain is? That would cause a problem.

    Second, chains, cogs and chainrings wear out together. The wear pattern is like...

    This to me is the best descriptions of a Brompton. You certainly don't buy it because of the shifting system but for the fold and the panache of owning a Brompton.

    This kit will not work. First the shifter cables are incompatible as you need the SA style cable with the very small head. The brake cable you need are typically the ones you use on mountain bikes...

    Yes, it is a Tempo.

    Zinc plates spokes, won't clean up well, so why bother.

    The stem and bars on the bike now are not original but they suit the bike. Could you not just find a bar that suits...

    If that frame was really made for a JIS headset you would be able to tell by measuring the fork for the crown race. If it measures 27.0 mm then it is a JIS.

    If you are going with the Campy bring...

    I like it but wish it had a horizontal top tube. That would give a more retro look.

    The bike was listed today, so I don't think you will see any motivation for them to sell at a reduced price. Most I would pay is $300 and that is if I was flush with cash. Does the bike fit you?...

    That bike, as nice as it is condition wise is not worth what they are asking. That bike brand new was about $399, if I remember correctly. I am with RandyJawa on his appraisal for this bike.

    I really want to be a minimalist and only own one bike but it's hard. So I have compromised to 1.5 bikes. The first is my Rivendell Sam Hillborne, for commuting and errands. My .5 is my Brompton,...

    I like the look of the cottered crank on that bike. Putting $125 to face and tap, then find a new bottom bracket and cranks just wouldn't be worth it (at least not to me).

    What about Mark's Rack made by Nitto for Rivendell? It is pricey but it works well. I have this rack holding a Wald medium basket on my Sam Hillborne.
