Still disappointed with the X-RF8 (W) on a Brompton?

I read that the axle must be trimmed and retooled (flat part for anti-rotation washers) from its original 175mm down to the BWR's 148mm, and spokes breaking might be an issue on such a small wheel, at least using a 28H rim.

i regret folow sturmey archer path.
Its draggy, fragile, and hard to find parts in south america.
​​​​​​

If only i could back in time i would go titanium rear triangle 135 path and nexus 8/alfine 11.

i have none spoke breakage, i use 28h on front and 36h on back double cross pattern and in stay straight as an arrow.

​​​​​​best.
