Thanks so much especially to you for all your input, Mulleady - I really appreciate all the time you put into sharing your knowledge on this thread. I'm very excited about the MD. Stay tuned - I may need help figuring out how to install it. I'll post a review once I've ridden with it for a while. I think it's going to add a new level of enjoyment to my commute.

+ if other forum readers were interested in Brompton upgrades, they probably wouldn't be looking for it in a thread entitled Wheeling a folded Mezzo - how easy?

Conversations evolve. After all you kindly pointed out there was no point offloading the Brompton for a Mezzo just for rolling ability. Therefore other options were naturally considered after an experienced power Mezzo-rider's opinion lol.

On-thread obssessions are only for pedants and ped-ants.

On your Mezzo jegmcg lol!

Check one of the roller axles' is not bent. The Rollerblade mod is recommended but care is needed not to bend the axle as it will only be supported on one side.

Again use approximately 70-76mm clear wheels with red core if you can find them, as they work really well with led rear lights. Must post a pic sometime.
