    numb hands

    I plan to raise my bars an inch or two to see if that helps. As is my hands go numb after a mile or two. Anyway, other than raising the stem what other things are good for eliminating numb hands?

    building a Brompton

    Is there a website somewhere that lets you build and rebuild Bromptons, selecting different options as you go and then see what the final price would be?

    At the risk of sounding cliche, they just don't make them like that any more. I've got a '70's Raleigh that is so much nicer than anything selling today, just like yours. Congrats.

    My tires are 700x45 so not skinny by any means but not super wide like some I've seen. My gauge is a supposedly good gauge from the HD dealer. The highest marking is 60 and the tire reads past the 60...
