    That is very true. But you get the difference, its not just closing the area. Its putting up the barriers, etc etc. Look at how well the Brompton WC's were done last year. Brompton liked the venue and exposure so much, that they have chosen to do it again this year. Doing it on the same weekend as the Ride-100 means they get to split the costs. Redbull should do something similar.

    There is only one place such an event in London should be. That is the Mall and around Bird Cage Walk. The problem shutting down that area is complicated, but it is something that happens a lot so they know how to do it. But its not cheap. The other problem is finding a point in the calendar to do it.

    @edscoble - As much as I try, they end up being my LBS again, since Day Cycles shutdown.

    That actually happens more frequently.

    Agreed. I normally degrease the chain and do a drive train clean, and re-lube myself every 3 months or so. Mine is a single speed so maintaining it is rather easy. That is how I managed to completely miss the play in the hinge for so long. Brake blocks are also easy to deal with, my front tire needs replacing but I can get another week or two out of it. Plus I tend to use the Brompton more in the winter months normally, rest of the time its my evening bike - or I commute on it if I know I have to be somewhere in the evening without going home to change bikes. Since last July I was using it more since my work commute dropped to five miles. So spending the money for piece of mind this time round is not a big deal. I know how to check the hinge now, so I will do that as part of my routine now.

    Well I got it fixed last week, £200 - Full service, hinge replacement, new chain, new sprocket, pads and a hinge. All was well with the Brompton until Tuesday night. When the slow grinding noise came back on my ride home. Turns out it was the pedal after all, that was making the noise.

    So a full 'Gold' Evans service does not include taking the pedals off and re-greasing them? Any way I have done it myself now and no more noises, yet.

    Now that Persona is being killed in few months, what are you looking at as an alternative?
