    Moustache Brompton

    I've had my S type Brompton for 5 or 6 years now but have always had hand discomfort when riding after 10-15 miles. I tried Ergons with bar ends and modified North Road bar, but the North Road rotated and the Ergons helped but the hand positions even with bar ends were too limited. Having...

    So I've got a Brompton

    Due to a family bereavement I've inherited this I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with it as it isn't the most practical bike when you live in the Peak District Seems to ride ok. I'll hang onto it and maybe it'll come in handy

    Brompton Stand

    On eBay B stands are around the £50 mark. I've just bought this fold-out childten's bike stand from amazon for £7 and it works fine. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M1HWKU2 (For use when I'm using a rack bag.)

    Another, “How best to carry a Brompton” post!

    just a little guidance request please! Well soon by cruising with our Bs, and will have to carry them a little way, from the room to the dockside, and wonder what might work best, as I’ll probably be carrying both for most of this. I have a Dimpa bag, but I’m not overly impressed with the size...

    A cheap(er) Brompton

    Word reaches me of yet another special edition Brommie. But this one has something worth having - a lower price. The Brompton 75 will be a limited edition of 75 bikes priced at £750. I'm not clear on specs, but I think the headline price will be for a naked bike - no rack or mudguards. The...

    Wobbling front wheel on my Brompton

    Happened for the first time a couple months ago - it's the cobblestones. The front wheel is the model with the dynamo fitted. Problem is, I didn't catch it until late - Paris isn't the quietist city in the world - but happened again yesterday. I'll tighten it up, of course, but am a little...

    Pack a Brompton for air travel

    As the title implies... I'm aiming to take my M12R to NZ. My mate down there has a bike I usually borrow, but it really doesn't fit me. So, how best to pack it? My current thinking involves folding it, removing the clamps, left pedal (and saddle?) to get it all as small as possible, and using a...

    Bottle holders for Brompton 9 Street

    I said I wouldnt post this to avoid a stampede. But I couldnt resist. A very kind man has made these bottle holders on his 3D printer for my Brompton 9 Streets. I am not divulging who. My task is to find out how tough they are. I think they will look great on the bike.

    Brompton DIY full service

    Is there anyone out there does all their own servicing on Brommies? I understand they have a lot of proprietary components and the fold means extra work on hinges etc, but having never had one in front of me, I was wondering how feasible it is to do all the maintenance oneself? I understand the...

    Does Cateye 400 Volt XC fit Brompton fitting?

    I've been mostly happy with my Cateye 300 on my Brommie, but lately, it's been playing up, in ways that suggests not just battery, however, it's working again, but I'd really like to get a spare light, as I always have a spare rear one in my saddlebag. However, 50 quid for the new 'brompton'...

    Unusual events that have paralysed your Brompton

    Had one today with ongoing repercussions. Went to the Mairie this morning, and, for once, took the Brompton. It's an easy walk for me, but I was intending to make some other stops after. As ever, looked for the first available free lamp post and tethered the Brompton to it. Paid my dues and...

    Saddlebag for Brompton

    Can anyone recommend a saddlebag for a Brompton? I have the Brompton pouch thing, but it never stays closes and I have lost tyre levers and multi-tool from it. I just need enough room for an inner tube, levers and multi-tool.

    Brompton Dynamo Wheel

    I'm thinking of fitting a Dynamo wheel to my Brompton. I've looked around and there don't seem to be many available.

    Brompton bags for commuting

    I am looking for a Brompton bag for daily commuting that is compatible with S type handlebars and the standard LED front light. I saw C and S bags are marked as not suitable for S handlebars and that got me thinking. I will need to carry, say, a 14" laptop and the equivalent of 2-3 books. Any...

    Brompton bags

    I have had my Brompton 9 Streets for about 6 weeks now and have ridden about 400km. I have realised that if it has Brompton written on it. Then its going to be expensive. I have bought one bag and frame and now Im going to have a go at making one myself. . Has anyone one here had a go?

    Brompton Serviced BUT?

    I just had the Brompton serviced but when I took it out for a ride, it's either so well done and it is riding smooth, too smooth. When I go from high to low or vice versa, there is no noticeable difference. No clunk, click, nada. What could be the problem?
