    Try to find out what the crown-to-dropout dimension is. That needs to be reasonably close to the original.

    After you posted originally about this kind of tape, I searched until I found a whole roll to buy. Put it on all my bikes. The remarkable thing about the tape is it settled perfectly. Initially it...

    The tech forum has not been retained, I see. Or did I miss it?

    The place on the chainstay where the front wheel hook goes when folding, tends to wreck the paint there.

    Just be aware that folding bike forks tend to be special. For one thing, your Giant has a folding stem. That means it probably has some special way of fixing. Might be a good idea to take the folding...

    It uses plain 9-sp shimano cogs. So for the Brompton, use the original ones or mix-and-match with other combinations. It's useful to...

    Those were Contis indeed, but have been discontinued. They weren't gumwall either, just a brown sidewall. I used quite a few of them but they never lasted well.

    Sorry I forgot to answer your question. I got the 9-spline version of the 5sp hub, drop-in replacement.

    Snow...! This time of year?

    Sheesh, I think my trip to Vancouver in 3 weeks might be all snow??

    I have 2 modern 9-spline 5-sp SA hubs in Brompton wheels. Not a single problem adjusting. No tinkering involved. Face it, the gearing excuse is exactly that - just an excuse.

    The gearing range can be made 341% with no frame mods and not much expense, cheaper than Alfine 8sp which is 307%. Buy a 2-sp Brompton, and install a 5-sp wide range wheel which is a drop-in...

    I find it significant that Dahon wasn't able to make their initial attempt work. The S-shaped top tube was an attempt to get a compact fold without using the characteristic Brompton humpback tube....

    Steel wool is a bad idea, it dulls the chrome by fine scratches. The alu foil does not do that. But yeah if the chrome is lifting then it's game over.

    I tried that and it didn't work because the angle of the vertical pin wasn't right. I had a castor like that but instead of the pin, it had a flange. I screwed the flange to the mudguard and that's...

    I had the speed drive on mine for a while. 1.65 over-drive. I also had the 2-speed rear, and later had a 5-speed wheel. 20 speeds, huge range of gears. Certainly possible to have almost anything.
