    I beg to differ on this one. As Fietsbob mentions there is a reason someone sells a clamp to stiffen up the M bar. There is no way that the small internal diameter aluminum bar on the Brompton...

    Yes, that is what I did, bought my own housing and cut it to length, much cheaper that way. Though I cannot buy the shifter cable by itself, I have to buy the whole kit from the Brompton dealer. I...

    Brompton S bar conversion

    Replaced the S bar with a Tioga R60 that I ordered from Chain Reaction so that I could get higher on my Brompton. Added Shimano brake levers that I had in my parts bin. Still need a gear changer...

    There is always the Cannondale Hooligan. They use to have at least one other model, but seems to be not sold anymore at least in North America.

    My main commuter, Rivendell Sam Hillborne has a second set of wheels, if a flat occurs. But I do have a back-up, and that is my Brompton.

    The bike is selling for $850 brand new, so you decide if this is a good deal or not. If it was me, no and I would buy new. If you don't know much about bikes, a new bike will come with free tune-ups,...

    I think it is pretty cool with some great ideas. I like your compact fold, but think a bag for the wheels would help as they can get pretty dirty etc. There is something to be said in having full...

    NormanF can you great advice but if you don't like moustache bars, then this is what you will need.

    A new bar, maybe even one with a little riser in it, that way you won't need to change your...

    Fenders have nothing to do with the fold per say, but they stabilize the bike in the folding position. The small wheel on the rear fender combined with the easy wheels create a tripod affect to keep...

    I used the Bruce Gordon half clips on my White Industries pedals and used them for years. They worked wonderfully. You could use any shoe, your shoes are less likely to slip on a wet pedal and as you...

    Stolen folding bikes CL and this stolen Brompton. Sounds like they were cut with bolt cutters. Don't know the type of locks but most likely not U locks.

    If it is a sticky link you grab the chain on each side of the tight link and you flex the chain back and forth, towards you and away from you. In other words the opposite way the chain wants to flex...

    My guess and it really is a guess, is a tight link in the chain. Stand the bike up, rotate the cranks backwards and watch the chain at the rear derailleur. If you see it do a little hop or skip as...

    I don't know if it is the best but the one that works for me is the Axiom. I have been using it daily for almost two years and it was only ten dollars. Goes over my medium Wald basket.

    Currently have an S bar Brompton and I find it too aggressive a position for me. I would like the M bar instead. From what I have read on this forum. I have a few choices.
