    Just ordered a new lightweight Brompton

    In a complete contrast to my normal impulse buying (especially any time concerned with cycling), I have taken well over two years to decide how to spend a legacy I received from my late father-in-law. I considered putting together a Fixe, flirted with the idea of a mountain-bike, but in the end...

    Modding a Brompton B75

    I've been hankering after a Brompton for a while now. My daily commuter is a Cube mtb that I put an electric kit on. I can go anywhere on it and won't be getting rid of it but it is a heavy lump to take in the car. So for summer use when I go away for weekends I want a folder. Saw the B75 this...

    Should I buy a Brompton?

    No idea where the desire has come from, but I really want a brompton. But I don't know what to use it for? I've got a commuter for the 6 mile work trip, and a roadie for the weekends - so why should I get a brompton? My wife has done a lot of eye rolling...

    Red Brompton

    This Red Brompton was stolen with other bikes from Atterbury Street, London this afternoon. A passer by took this photo of a guy attacking another bike with a grinder. They were too afraid to approach them. Notice how he is wearing a helmet and viz belt to blend in as a cyclist. Any...

    Brompton 3 speed gearing question

    Just had a test ride on a standard 3-speed Brompton form Evans in Leeds. Was OK really but I found the gearing to be a bit high. I think I used 3rd just once in the few hours I had it. Was nearly always in 1st with the occasional relaxed cruising on the flat in 2nd. I'm not a fit or fast...

    Small saddle bag for Brompton.

    Can anyone recommend a small saddle bag for a Brompton that can stay on when folded. Only want to fit one spare tube no space for tools needed as I treated myself to the Brommie tool kit last year. A strap for a rear light to clip on would be good. This one looks ok I could probably glue and...

    Brompton waiting time

    A tentative Brompton inquiry gathered the news that waiting time for a custom Brommie is currently 13 weeks. Longer than usual, a bike ordered today might not arrive before Christmas. My Brommie dealer, who professes no inside knowledge, wonders if the delay is caused by Brexit. I hate to...

    Bobbing Titanium Seat post for Brompton

    Hello everyone, I am in the midst of confusion over the use of upgrade material for my Brompton bike. I am confused about the use of titanium seatpost which also results in bobbing when pedaling. and on the other hand the use of aluminium is also very rarely used by Brompton bicycle users...

    Older Brompton frame hinge clamp bendy, flexy or loose?

    Hello I have bought a fairly well used Brompton from Ebay: a 5 speeder (I really wanted the gears and don't like the 6 speed Heath Robinson setup). I know, £1100 for a new one probably is better value than £500 for a 18 year old one, but if you don;t have £1100 and think the new gears are daft...

    Locking a Brompton

    Hello all, I finally got myself a 2nd hand Brompton, loving it so far. But today I found out that in the new workplace I won't be able to keep it indoors :/ There's a shed on site for staff to lock their bikes, but as you'd expect I'm very hesitant about locking mine, even if it may be safer...

    Variation on a Nano conversion

    I've just done a Nano-based conversion of my 2006 Brompton, but I did not want to use the Nano electrified luggage block/converted bag system, but instead to have the battery mounted somewhere on the frame. I found a 36v bottle battery on eBay that is smaller than the usual ones, at 5.6Ah, so a...

    Brompton 2 speed shifting issue

    I have just given my 6 speed it's first proper service, after three years and ~8000 miles the rear tyre was down to canvas and the amount of gunk on the drive train needed chiselling off. :laugh: It's all cleaned up good, the change to kojaks has made it feel like a whole different bike, brakes...

    Brompton - advice on rear fold problem after Nano conversion

    I have had my 2009 M6R Brompton converted by Nano and it is now not folding right. Part of the problem seems to lie with the rear of the bike, which *shouldnt* have been affected at all by the conversion, so I am stumped. The rear wheel seems to be further from the frame than it should be and...
