Please excuse poor colour...

    MKS Sylvan Touring Next Ezy Superior black on Brompton

    Upgraded Brompton pedals with MKS but didn't want the Ezy versions considering there is a plastic ring to be inserted every time. So decided to go with Ezy Superior versyon MKS Sylvan Touring Next. No plastic rings. Pedals are wide with big contact surface, also more grippy than Brompton ones...

    Frequent rear wheel punctures from Brompton rim

    On a couple of Bromptons over the years, I've had irritatingly frequent rear punctures, always when the bike is parked, that are traceable to a badly-finished rim hole. The sharp edge chafes at the base of the valve stem, presumably as the tyre deforms under pedalling forces, and then deflates...

    travelling on LNER / Transpenine with a Brompton

    Good day all. I'm starting a new job very soon, and the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to get there is by train (LNER / Transpenine Express) with a bicycle and a shortish ride of a few miles at either end. This will be my first time commuting by train or bicycle apart from a year or two in...

    Pedal replacement for Brompton?

    I find Brompton pedals to be OK but I always wish for something better and probably grippier too. Does anyone have experience with upgrading pedals on Brompton? There are some models with quick release, but then where to store removed pedal. Any good upgrades with foldable design?

    Outbound Lighting Road Edition for Brompton?

    I like good lights and don't like when bike light beam is designed as flashlight. I understand that lights for mountain bikes and road bikes serve different purpose and I think lights need to be marketed as such. I also like StVZO certified lights not only because they don't blind incoming...

    Numpty - front axle Brompton.

    So, like many people, I’ve not ridden my Brompton much over the past year and a half. We’ve only been going in to the office for a couple of months and only occasionally at that. Anyway. I’ve been thinking that it sounded very ‘graunchy’ at the front end. I put it down to the fact that...

    Spa Cycles super-compact double on a Brompton

    Has anyone used one of these Spa Cycles super-compact doubles on their Brommie? I've just changed the BB for a Shimano UN55 118mm so would prefer to not have to replace it again -- but how to know if the Spa double will work out ok (ie not interfere with folding etc)? N.

    Brompton repair shops along the West Coast of Ireland

    I'm planning on riding the Wild Atlantic Way and I have two bike options. The Brompton would be very convenient as I have to fly from and to California as well as from London to Cork and Londonderry to London. But I'm worried about getting repairs if I have a mechanical. I only see the one...

    Regular brompton to Electric brompton using brompton parts?

    I was looking at some third party kits to convert regular brompton to electric. Price wise they are not great. When added to new bike cost, most of them go over new electric brompton price. There is really no financial initiative to modify new out of factory regular brompton. On other hand I had...

    tubeless tire sealant on Brompton tires

    I have Marathon Racers on my Brompton now, and due to ample rain in the spring this has been the worst year I can remember for Goatheads, the uniquitous natural caltrops found in the western states. Based on advice from my LBS, I used an ounce or so of tubeless tire sealant each in the tires...

    32 miles on a Brompton, no issues… what is your farthest distance…?

    I know many have done many more miles on their Brompton, but today I did my farthest cycle on my Nine Streets. For anyone who wonders whether these amazing machines can be used for anything other than a short (commute) distance, I have to say, they really are fine. I had some well worn...

    Brompton prices

    I had an Email from Brompton a couple of days ago. It seems that stock levels are getting better as there are several models listed for order on their website.
