Hi All
New to this forum, hope you can help with this problem.
I have recently bought a new Brompton H6L. In the lowest gear on the hub their is a quiet whirring noise which becomes louder climbing steep hills.
I can also feel it through the pedals, this does not occur in the other two gears. Is this normal. I have checked nothing is rubbing anywhere, the gear is adjusted properly and their is no play in the wheel.
Thanks for any help.
Roger

Bromptons have several uniquely Brompton noises. I guess most folks first experience of the whirr of a happy Sturmey will come from them but you wait until the suspension bolt squeak strikes... I'd pulled the pedals and bottom bracket apart to regrease them the first time it happened :biggrin:
