    Brompton M bar adjustment

    Can't decide between a S bar and M bar. S bar a little low for me while M a little too close to my body. Can i just pivot the M bar a little forward to increase reach and lower the bar at the same time? Will that affect the folding?

    Brompton gear upgrade

    My classic 3-speed Brompton is beginning to get a bit tired. The gear feels as if it needs a good clean, and the aluminium rack has snapped. Now that I'm working in London much less I'm tempted to convert it from a pure commuting folder into a commuting-touring hybrid folder - with half an eye...

    Brompton virgin questions!!

    Being a Brompton virgin ... with a neglected machine to refurbish I have a few questions please. The machine I have is, I think, a T type c 2003/4 - had a 3-speed hub and 2-speed deraiilleur - AFAIK the chainset is original. The previous owner in his wisdom removed the derailleur but didn't...

    Enjoying my new Brompton

    Last year I bought an S2L and only started using it this week. I love it coz it's its the same speed as my road bike when commuting. The rb is obvsly faster but the brommie doesn't need to hang around at red lights. When they approach, I whip off the bike, run across like a pedestrian, and hop...

    Why are Brompton folding bikes so expensive?

    I just wondered what makes a Brompton worth nearly a thousand pounds in comparison with many of the cheaper folders that are now available? Is it the components? Frame materials? Great service if something goes wrong? They seem to be the folder of choice for many, have a great following and...

    What does 40mph on a Brompton look like?

    Like this: Topped out at 40mph this morning down Marlow Hill. I normally go a little faster, but: a) it was icy and I was slightly concerned about being able to stop b) I had to stop on the hill to set the camera rolling. It's not that interesting except to prove the naysayers wrong. View...

    Brompton (which one?) or Birdy, or even moulton ?

    Just to help guide my decision, I find myself in the market for a small folding bike, Brompton being the obvious starting point. I envisage using it whilst working away, in London if training it to London an this kind of thing. So having got used to fairly nice bikes for everyday use, I don't...

    Brompton 1 speed and 2 speed chain tensioners

    Does anyone know if there is any difference other than flanged pulley wheels (2 speed) and unflanged (1 speed)? Except for the sliding flanged pulleys they seem identical, which would indicated that if pulleys were replaced on a 1 speed it would work for a 2 speed given that the other necessary...

    Convert Brompton to Recumbent?

    My brompton doesn't get much use. Been thinking about selling it, but I have this crazy idea of turning it into a recumbent. It has the SA 8 speed upgrade and with it's rear suspension I think it would make a fun 'bent. I'm not worried about keeping the fold, so really just after brazing on a...

    Mysterious Brompton light!

    Mrs Poacher just announced that the rear light on her Brompton was on. Big deal, you say? Well, the thing is, her Brompton doesn't actually have a rear light, except for the superflash I installed at the top of the extended seat post, and it wasn't that. Turns out that what we'd thought was a...

    Honking on yer Brompton - can you, do you?

    This comes from another thread where I mentioned that honking on a Brompton is nigh-on impossible. I was it seems soon put right by those who do and can. So I had another go when out this morning and whilst I can do it just about, it doesn't feel natural, advantageous or 'safe' , whereas...

    Brompton M+ skittishness?

    Last weekend put M+ tyres F&R on the Brompton, replacing a pair of Brompton Kevlar tyres that were wearing a bit thin on the rear. On last weeks genteel ride noticed that the rear felt a bit squirmy on a couple of occasions. This morning on a shopping run on damp roads and paths have found the...

Anyone use the telescopic post...

    Brompton Rear wheel removal (S6L) and 2x M+ fitted .... am feeling EPIC!

    Well now I know that removing the rear wheel is not that big an issue so no longer scary. Also know how to fit an M+ to a Brompton wheel. No sweat (OK, some swearing but I still have both thumbs). 2 Dragons slain and I feel EPIC!

    Replace brompton parts often?

    I know on a brompton the parts need replacing more often than on a larger bike. I researched rims and various drivetrain parts need replacing often but what is your experience in how long the various parts last?

    Brompton 15% off - should I stock up?

    I've got a voucher code for 15% off on the Brompton site. I don't want any of their gifts or clothing & I already have all the bags I need. I wonder if I should just stock up on consumables while I have the chance - a spare chain, maybe replacement handlebar grips. Any thoughts? I don't want to...

    Brommie - slipping seat post

    I have a problem with my Brompton. The seat post keeps slipping. By the time I've cycled the three miles from the station to work, it has slipped about two inches. However, if I tighten the nut sufficiently to stop the slippage, I cannot fold and unfold the bike. Does this indicate some...
