@maynardeames is right on all counts
my only other advice is a pair of Vans, which I think is a much better upgrade than any titanium part
THIS is a great help, thanks v. much.
She's using Cycle to work for the purchase, so i think she needs to buy from an actual bike shop, unless you know otherwise?
Agreed. Brompton and vans are made for each other
Depends which scheme! Some are limited to local shops, some can be anywhere
NOS? How much?
Brand new model, B75, £745.
Interesting, that's cheaper than a M1E!
Could live with the old style penta clip, brake lever, caliper, gear shifter and non folding pedals plus it's 3 speed.
Already sold 1/3 arrived, be quick, they are limited and going like hot cakes!
Wished I could, I have a M1E and a M6L Titanium so really shouldn't be adding another to the stable.
As it is, I'm happy to swap between the two and they're both a joy to ride so can't justify another... ;)
Is it just a way of using up the old parts they had in stock then? Or do you reckon they'll do more budget models?
Well these are limited in number, but I think a budget range is not just for old stock clearance.
Not old stock but not current model grips, saddle, clamp, pedals.
The m stem is old shape but has a black bolt like the new style wedges - will pop one out on Monday to check.
As far as we know there will be more available.
If it was purely stock clearance, sjs would have brought it all so they missed a trick!
Also, new style, white suspension!
Pedals don't fold?
No sir, but we could sort out a deal onto a folding one if desired!
That B75...So tempting.
Does 3 speed make sense?
Yes. Although if you come to sjs I’ll swap it to anything you like for less than it would cost you to do it later.
Commuted on my new (to me) Brompton for the first time last night. Fun ride, except my shoes got snagged on the small wheels that sit either side of the seatpost quick release - really hurt one of the times! Weird as I’m slightly pigeon-toed and have never had heal rub on cranks of normal bikes. Anyone else had this issue?
The wheels I’ve got are below - can you buy narrower ones or would it hurt to just take them off? I won’t be wheeling it around on them and can put a cap on the bottom of the seatpost so it doesn’t get damaged.
Anyone else had this issue?
Anyone else had this issue?
Yes, same as you as I've not had an issue on other bikes. They look like the old wheels, I have the newer ones and I still do it occasionally.
This also happened to me until I replaced them with the eazy -wheels.
Cool thanks both - will get some newer wheels and hope for the best!
New shop inside Westfield?
New Junction shop and W12 limited edition bike
get newer wheels - I have tonnes I can ship if needed, the little stock ones.
Move your feet out!
I see easy access for me to try one of those newer model....
What happens if you live in W6? or W3 (@cake)
