    • KCNC v-brakes; frame matched brazing by Osaka frame maker
    • custom made one-piece Ti seatpost w/clamp (60cm length, same as Brompton "extended")
    • swappable chainrings
    • 'S' steering stem with riser bar for larger riders
    • almost every component upgraded

    The bike is now in Singapore and I'm asking GBP 1800. Has its own wooden shipping box and I can arrange shipping/delivery through a trusted UK freight forwarder.

  • bling-a-ling

  • if you can get some miniature arrospoks on it, you can count me in

  • very nice

  • now now FFS form an orderly queue and put your DIBS in

  • That bike is genius!!! I neeeeeeeeeeed a £1800 titanium folding bike in my life!!!!!!!!!!

  • lol, all that work and you didn't upgrade the standard black plastic right hand side pedal:


    Non folding alloy Brompton pedal. £Not much. Looks loads better.

  • This is a bit like when people put sports exhaust systems on smart cars.

  • exactly.

    If anyone is actually interested in buying this then I can sell them St Pauls Cathedral for £50. Its a bloody bargain and you can ride your Brompton around it (in the nude).

  • This is a bit like when people put sports exhaust systems on smart cars.

    But have you seen the Smart car with a Hayabusa engine in it?

  • That bike is genius!!! I neeeeeeeeeeed a £1800 folding bike with a 60cm titanium seatpost in my life!!!!!!!!!!

    fixed

    sorry if i missed something.

  • Should have known you'd be along, Dammit...

    heads off to google

  • Yeah, ok... thats a bit better than the brompton.

  • Is it just my imagination or is £1800 is hugely inflated asking price?

    Sorry if I missed something.

  • Im definitely missing something.

  • It's all very nice, but the chain looks a bit slack.

  • blank expression

    This is lost on me.

  • Does seem a little much... depends on how much the Ti seatpost and extra brazing costed. Frame / wheels etc w/out all the special parts is about £1100 new.

  • purchased and customized in Japan by leading folding specialist shop.

    This'll give some clue to the price hike.

    "Blick Lane Blike Shop Tokyo, we charge more than 50 dorra for customisation"

  • Racist



  • Awesome. Apparently the mudguards are 'black'. I'd say they're pretty much invisible. This is why they're so expensive.

  • usually i hate folding bikes but this is very slick. make sure it goes to a good home!

  • I've just realised that this could genuinely be construed as racist so I've deleted my post. Archi, would appreciate if you could do the one that quoted me.

    Done

  • Wasn't there a guy who had a super brompton stolen lately?
