    Looking for a good SIM-only plans. Want to move away from EE. Came across iD from CPWH are they any good?

    Is anyone here using them? What is data speed like in your area etc?

    New Moto G becomes official today!

    Not worried about bars. I am one of those Brompton owners that regrets getting an M over an S. So I solved my problem by getting the stem adaptor, and I am running an old Easton riser bar. No fold issues as such, my light has to rotate around until the plastic thingy gets clipped. But that is fine.

    I want a slightly longer seat post. Was thinking the telescopic one, but I also want to put a Cambium on. The telescopic is a bit of a mixed blessing. If I lock the bike up somewhere then forget to take the saddle - I'm making it easier to get pinched. I could just get the longer normal seatpost then pitlock (or other) the saddle. Any thought or am I worrying about the wrong thing?

    The ti seatpost seems like a good alternative to the standard one - which is why I was thinking about that too.

    Those posts are priced way cheaper than the other 3rd party ones available. Going to look for more possible mods on ebay. I really want one of those fancy chaintensioners, but ~$200 for them is way too much.

    @motoko that is my preference as well for short flights. easyJet were the only ones so far that have been funny about doing that. For long haul like @aggi's flight I imagine it would be different.

    Awesome day out. I miss the 'rep' button!

    Well done @Scoot and @Yankee_Shit_Bag. The Thundercats also did a great job - its a shame about the 'Last Chance' being cancelled.

    Posted some pics on FB . Took a lot of pics going to take a while to sort and upload the rest.

    The video is pretty much what you have done already. Now this is where I think you are better of making it obvious what is in your luggage. So it is handled with care, rather than just being treated like other items. Put a sticker or sign saying 'BIKE' and 'THISWAYUP' so it doesn't get thrown around.

    If you have replaced the standard Brompton pedals, then you should consider taking the drive side pedal off. In the video he has removable pedals, which he has taken off. Off course this means have to take a pedal spanner with you.

    I get around 2 years out of the front and a little less on the rear with the Marathon Plus. I weigh more and I do skid a little from time to time.

    For that price I would want at least 4 years out of them. Its too soon for any lifetime data, they have only been going a couple of years, and I believe the 18" tyre only launched last year.

    I was hoping that someone had already bitten the bullet as well. Having said that at SpinLdn I spoke to people from Tannus. The word I got from them is that the Brompton CEO himself is rocking them. Brompton is apparently using the Tannus tyres on their rental bikes so to reduce maintenance issues with the bikes. The price is the only thing holding me back, I think I have a couple more months on my current tyres - so I have some time to decide.
