Ron's Parts Bin

This aim of this thread is to share and showcase selected folding bike items in my parts bin. The parts featured here are not necessarily the 'best', highest quality, lightest, most interesting or top performers, or available worldwide. They are nothing more that parts that I bought to suit my own particular personal purposes in my locality at the time of the post. Prices are the purchase price that I paid for the item in my locality.

Nice looking tire. How supple is it compared to the old Greenspeed Scorcher?

Something a little narrower to easily fit on a Brompton is a plus.

I don't know. Never used the Scorcher. Sorry.

Brompton? This one is ISO451.

Of course, the Scorcher is much too expensive for the Ron's Trash Bin.

No, it's not that at all. Money is not the issue. The issue is that some of us live in an area of the world where we have a lot more product variety and offerings, often at lower prices than comporable products elsewhere. I really have no need for the Scorcher which got its reputation when 451 options were fewer in other, less privileged parts of the world. Folks really do need to get out more and join us in the year 2022. For my part, I've got more good 451 tires that I can actually care to use.

The Greenspeed Scorcher do not exist in ETRTO451.

This tire was developed by Greenspeed for their race trike Aero that has ETRTO349 wheels front and ETRTO406 wheel rear.

The concept of this tire is a slick, high pressure, 40mm wide, lightweight tire.

There are several versions of the Scorcher with different construction.

Frame geometry (reach, stack...) wheelbase, frame weight, folded size, wheel size (inch size is meaningless, ETRTO size needed) ???
