Looks great =]
Does the raw finish hold up OK though do you think? Found a few threads in the interweb suggesting rust can develop easier compared to standard powdercoat?
rust develops exactly the same, you can just see it!

Next, finished this cloud blue, not a fan with silver components, think this brings the colour out better
Next super build is 75% built and probably more fancy that the above without being too in ya face ... gold Chris king etc
Needs JK saddle!
Ha. Customer build so completely their choice!
Next one has a Fizik!
Beautiful builds @sbbohr !
Off to the Norfolk countryside for a long weekend with my Brompton
@sbbohr do you have a 2 speed axle?
depends on your butt!

There's a wide variety of arses on this thread.
Don’t think so!
Sensibly priced mini o bag alternative, any ideas?
My right pedal (~4 years and 6,802km old) has a lot of play in it, and both are looking very battered—does anyone know anywhere that has stock?
Looks like Brompton do (or their website is rubbish).
I got a brand new one... just swung it on eBay actually
I have no idea why that didn’t occur to me—thanks!
If it’s the folding ones I think I’ve got an old pair in the shed in sw19 if you want them.
What make is the rear rack and front block?
The pedals are rebuildable, supposly. Dibs your knackered pedals for me to practice on.
Ti parts rack, maybe it’s a multi s block?
Do Brompton cables only fit their own brake levers or will they work with third party ones too? I want to get fit the Kuosac mid rise handlebars, but will need to replace the cables. Currently have these brakes. And I was wondering if I could just use a pair of standard M type cables to replace with, since no gears to worry about?
Have JK mid risers myself with m type cables, will work fine.
Excellent. So, I'm guessing the cables aren't anything special at all and fit most things?
Not necessarily, cables need to match bar type; m bars need m cable, s bars need s cables and so on.
M cables just happen to be right size for m stem & JK mid riser.
I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong!
The cable lengths affect how neatly the cable loom sits when unfolded and to a lesser extent folded, but aren't critical to function. If you have a single speed it matters a lot less because there's only one cable in the loom to the rear.
The cable itself is just a bog standard MTB flat bar fitting.
