    Are 16" wheels too small to work with disks. It will be at curb height, just asking go be bashed.

    As a matter of casual interest, no more than that, how much is one? The website doesn't seem to show that.

    And, given that the standard Brompton brake will lock the back wheel, what's the point, precisely?
    Other than letting one fit the costs more, weighs more, breaks sooner range of Shimano hubs, obvs.

    Ah, I did see the point last year on holiday in France. At the bottom of a steep descent, where we stopped to regroup, one of our Bromptonistas suffered a blow out from breaking heating.

    I understand that in desperate times making water on the wheels will cool them down.

    I want one even though there's a Kinetics one going on Henrietta as soon as the carbon rims turn up... as soon as Serge has the titanium ones ready I'll change over to that... I would have thought a Kinetics one will still sell OK...

    Is it the integrated rack version?
