    Exactly - as much as many cyclists HATE being lumped in with the idiots who give them a bad name, one sees the same kind of comments universally lumping all drivers as one and the same.

    Thanks for the answers - I've installed the shifter cable but there's was simply not enough outer cable for the left/right gear cables. First time doing it and admittedly ignorant.

    Never quite thought of it that way, but I agree it's a pretty important distinction to make.

    A drunk driver will fall back on the word "accident", which hints that it was a matter of bad luck...

    My 3 Bromptons has chips in all the usual places - notably where the hinges/clamps meet. First thing I always do is paste clear helicopter tape on the frame/stem/triangle where the cables are likely...

    Thanks for the advice guys. I just wanted to ensure my bike maintenance was on the right track - some people pick up poor habits and end up damaging their equipment for years without realizing it.

    Cleaning a multi-tool

    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.

  16. 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...

    Unfortunately half the motorists "being warned" by cyclists open-carrying will not even see the cyclist - much less the AR-15 strapped to their back - while they're texting.

    The problem now is cars have evolved to such a point that they are essentially rolling relaxation chambers. Climate control, piped music, contoured seats, etc all conspire to lull the driver into a...

    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.
