    There appears to be a clamp on the lower portion as well; if so, then no slop.

    Thanks! My mistake was to include the words BRAKE or GEAR, those yielded no results.

    He didn't say the telescoping thing went down, he did intimate that the hinge folded while riding. That is a valid complaint. That is something the Dahon handlepost became notorious for when they...

    Puzzling that they have it so small. 55cm TT is medium, so 53cm is already size small and that's the biggest. Perhaps they are aiming at children.

    That one, while very stylish, is decidedly male in frame impact, very high step-over. No suggestions though.

    Yes, and the bike is also the cleanest of any bike on the internet. Completely clean. Like it's been living in a satellite construction cleanroom.

    To improve shifting on my bikes with 60T front ring, I made my own shifting pins. That made such a massive difference.

    Not sure where you got that from... I got the W (2009-) version, the gears are reasonably evenly spaced, and is not a nuisance to use at all. Mine came with a simple barend style thumb control lever,...

    The 5sp hub was an almost drop-in job. It's been a while but as I remember the only thing was that the dust cap didn't fit. I will need to check my wife's Brompton, she has one, I took mine off after...

    Wow. I wonder what caused such a thick steel rod to sheer off.

    Good job getting it out!

    The A-bike is most definitely lighter for a production folding bike. Not a bike that I would buy but still lighter. AND smaller. And the "safest" is quite subjective. I think all that hyperbole is...

    I think it might be a product of kickstarter. I have been looking at some other campaigns and typical claims of "bestest" "fastest" "coolest" seems pretty common there.
