I'm thinking about buying an Ori Mi8 and adding Versa vr8 shifters and an On One Bingo Handlebar to replace/supplement my Brompton. Is there anyway I can determine if the bars will effect the fold other than suck it see or is there a commercial qr stem bolt available(I have googled but not had much joy)? Also I'm thinking about luggage options . Would it possible to fit front panniers like the birdy or the fold out rear pannier rack from bike friday. I mostly want to use the bike for multi modal commute mixed with a full bike commute (3km or 30km one way respectively) and I have tried a number of solutions including an ebike(too slow as I need to ride both directions full distance), cadenza 8 which was nice to ride bar the creaking but no good on the train and a Brompton which is great for multi modal but sucks for the full trip as it is quite hilly here. I'd also like to use the bike for light touring. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
