    Maybe it's because Brompton owners are all business whereas Dahon owners tend to be out for fun? I mean, let's face it that's what most people want from a bike and that's why Dahon sells more bikes...

    I've put some miles onto my WT5 over the last 6 months, but never got around to updating:

    I know we've bristled each other a bit over the years, but I didn't know you had a back injury...that sucks.

    Agreed and if I had to replace my three IGH gear trains from scratch I think I'd go with the Sturmey 5-speed for all of them, but since I got what I got (including the Jtek) I intend to make the...
