Link is unsecure / can't load web site.
Who modified, or put this bike together?
Thanks for sharing.

Not sure here. Brompton has a wheelbase of 104.5cm, within the bracket for a full size bikes. Folders typically have a shorter wheelbase giving rise to a squirrelly handling. Now this 20" 'Brompton' seems to have a wheelbase of the order of 118cm, there to squeeze in the 20" into the folded size. This is well beyond the bracket employed for full size bikes, presumably resulting in a klutzy sluggish handling.

Seems a long reach to the handlebars. Good for tall people but guessing by the seat angle that the rider is not tall.

The problem is there's absolutely NOTHING WRONG with that link. I can easily access it from another site (where I saw it in the first place). Totally ridiculous.

My Firefox browser reports "Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" for the SSL certificate. Other browsers may be less explicit, but that seems like a real problem to me.

Edit: that was the forum link. The one directly above (for Neuss) shows:

Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.junik-hpv.de. The certificate is only valid for chronos.space4rent.de.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

Well...perhaps are the certificates not valid for the wrong spelling of the page address (with https: )?

What do your browsers tell you once the "s" was removed from the links (https: )?

Edit: Obviously, it is a forum "feature" - the software will add automatically an "s" after recognizing the letters h t t p and there is no way to avoid that.

When I used the link DIRECTLY FROM the UK forum where I saw the post I had no issues. Apparently it worked fine on Chrome, Edge, AND FIREFOX. Somehow the link is being modified when I post it, and it's no longer a valid, secure link. The one thing noted in FF is that the forum link isn't secure apparently. Here's the post in Cycle Chat

Now, it wasn't necessary to actually quote me, so can you not do it again,...unless you manage to find a way to share the link WITHOUT having it become invalid.

GOT IT!!! But, if you look at the "copy and paste" link, it's http, NOT https. It's just not being allowed. No biggie,... I love the Mega Brommie all the same. It just might be too big for me (I believe it's custom designed for a rider who's WAYYYY over 6' tall, and I'm 5'11"), but it still looks AMAZING!
