    One can't win on this forum. Encouraging safe riding is somehow deeply offensive to the 'free-spirited' hippies who sneer at rules and believe their uniquely heightened senses will always save their...

    So was I - when I was a Melbourne student in the early 00s, the big Ford Falcons and Holden Commodores were already starting to die out, to be replaced by Toyotas and Hondas.

    Now they are pretty...
  3. I'm going to order the Powerlink connectors then....

    I'm going to order the Powerlink connectors then. Just curious, how are the 7-speed, 8-speed and 9-speed different? Can I only use an 8-speed for my Brompton and why?

    I want the gold which is only...

    I respectfully disagree. This looks very much like a sleek, modern bike rather than the boxy design reminiscent of that era. Even the cool matte black is nothing like the metal black of the Model T.

    I can't disagree. The Octane bar wasn't that big...

    I can't disagree. The Octane bar wasn't that big a change in geometry and length from the original M-bars, so I guess I avoided most of the problems you ran into. The only (tiny) issue I had was the...

    Here are pics of the newly installed rear fender:

    398441398442

    The second pic shows 4 holes for what I assume are to accommodate the roller-wheel and 2 stays. And one more stay will be mounted...
  7. No I did not write to them, but I figured -...

    No I did not write to them, but I figured - wrongly perhaps - that being in UK, they would be less likely to override Brompton's arbitrary rulings. I tried using a freight forwarder (delivered to a...

    There is basically no way to 'officially' buy official parts from overseas Brompton dealers. One of the first places I checked was SJScycles.com, but the usual "this item may have selling...

    Can't a riser bar be adjusted to fit the height...

    Can't a riser bar be adjusted to fit the height of the rider a little better?

    Obviously the flat S-bar can't do that, but a 40mm or more rise should allow the bars to be moved back so the rider...

    At least Brompton acknowledged the weak point and tried to fix it?

    Yeah, I was naive enough to think all I needed was the fenders+screws and nothing more. My LBS (the only Brompton shop here)...
  11. Brompton - Changing from R (rack) to L (fenders only) - rear fender

    So I spent too long last night switching out the rack and installing the rear fender after it arrived from BikeBrompton.

    After which I realized the rear fender is extremely floppy and probably...
  12. Hear hear! Bicycles and fanny packs are both...

    Hear hear! Bicycles and fanny packs are both victims of ridiculous, groundless stigmas.

    In a world where bike-riding would be the norm because it is the practical option, fanny packs would be...
  13. Not sure how big the diff is between Marathons...

    Not sure how big the diff is between Marathons and Marathons+, but I never had any complaints with my Marathons. When I changed to B. Kevlars they only felt slightly faster with no change in the...

    I don't understand - why is this an equipment problem rather than an attitude problem?

    I use the Cygolite Expilion 680 and L&M Urban 550, pointed them slightly towards the ground, and they've...

    The question remains - is Singapore the only country in the world where the pump is excluded? I can't imagine the reason.
  16. I've got a non-Ti (mine) and later a Ti (wife) -...

    I've got a non-Ti (mine) and later a Ti (wife) - neither came with a pump.

    They charge one of the highest prices in the world - US$2150 for a base model with EZ wheels.

    Still it's always good...
  17. Do all Brompton bikes still come with a pump?

    Heard it's only for non-Ti but is the inclusion of a pump standard around the world? Thanks.

    They said they don't have it in stock, which is pretty unusual. They're not that small a shop by local standards

    Thanks guys, I guess what fazed me was that all 3 shops did not have what I assumed was a pretty standard tool. I guess it's bike-specific rather than a general tool?

    Even today I went to my...
  20. Need advice for removing MKS Compact EZY adaptors (Brompton)

    It seems very tough to locate a wrench that is thin enough to fit between the adaptor head and the crank.

    Unfortunately here in Singapore my only source is not huge hardware...

    You sound like a cautious guy. Cautious people get hit less. That's the point of caution.

    The integrity of the data would always be iffy. I doubt they can strictly verify a big chunk of a year-long study. As with the Danish experiment, I believe it would mostly be dependent on the word of...

    Yeah I think they quoted me about US$8



    I wouldn't know where to buy one, though I guess I could pay a mechanic to do it.

    Hmm I don't remember having a blog or a reality show, so I guess now you're just bordering on stalker-ish behaviour o.O;
