    I'm still mystified by the whole thing. Bromptons have become ridiculously common in London; I've seen commuter traffic where they were more than half the bikes going by. If someone was going to...

    I've put 16,000+km on my folder, mostly in london. I get comments occasionally, but it's pretty rare, not enough to be a problem. I think you are being oversensitive.

    I've got over 5,000km on MKS FD-7 Folding, and they aren't showing signs of wear yet. Not floppy in anyway, though I am not the most powerful cyclist.

    Now you've sorted out your tyre, I can ask: what "sports" do you do on a no-brand folding ebike?

    Thanks everyone. Further inspection shows the front skewer is bent. Question is, is it the result or the cause of the failure. I am thinking the former, because it makes it hard to tighten it...
  6. I feel like my best friend has punched me in the face (Mezzo D9)

    I've had a mezzo since 2008. It's done northwards of 17,000km and been all over south east England, to France a few times, Germany, Luxembourg (including a memorable day I rode in all three...

    turns out the mezzo wasn't going to take this lying down. First ride after the above postings, it threw me off. The front wheel came out of its quick release, and now I have a broken clavicle. Bugger.

    Well, the lycra comes with the territory. I do long rides, so I dress for them. I wouldn't roadify my mezzo, it has it's life as my pootle vehicle. Pop down the shops; pop it in a cloth bag with...

    I guess now I am a roadie.

    Another Dunwich Dynomo here, and fairly regular 100 km rides on my mezzo.

    I just put it in a soft bag, and trust it's tougher than baggage handlers. So far, so good. 10 trips, I guess.

    In Covent Garden a colonnaded porch forms a sort of proscenium arch, where approved buskers can ply their trade. One day I was wheeling my mezzo along the wall you can see in the back of the attached...

    This seems much less of a problem with folding bikes; I've never used a toilet with a cubicle so small a brompton wouldn't fit. On the other hand, it's a rare moment when you find one large enough...

    I was very happy (after dropping the nose a couple of inches) with a B17s on my mezzo. It later moved (just as happily) to my road bike.

    Yeah but no.

    It unhooks from the fork, but stays attached to the mudguard, that stays attached to the frame, so it just feels a natural part of the fold.

    Nice bike.

    To be clear, if you have the same chainring and cassette as you mountain bike, it's geared much lower. Wheel size needs to be factored in.

    So your highest gear on the mountain bike...
