I can't blame them for that, they can't have everything in stock... TBH they went over and above helping me out at the last minute...
I'll have a look and give it a go, show me a rear close-up of one you've done? I'm shit at this unless I get a bit of a visual clue......
Checked out Brisbane's Brompton dealer today, not a brilliant selection of stuff but I did get some Easy Wheels... Pretty easy to fit but what do I do with the bung?
why not? ;) we do! ha!
stick the bung in the bottom of the seat post..
But my seatpost has already got a bung in it! I guess it's all ok then... 🙏
If you're getting rid I'll take them Joe.
Get in line... ;)
These bars will have clocked up some air miles.
PRC > UK > OZ >........UK?
Except you can’t buy the reaming tool (it’s £100 odd) and they won’t tell you the size 😂
What replacement little roller wheels for a Brompton? got the oe little conical ones on it at present
The cheapest / as functional as the rest are the Brompton ones...
The rest are just fancy
Cheaper ones from companies such as ace tend to fall apart quite quickly
Cheers will order
yeah, I will. Right in front of you!
They're great, I put mine on on Monday and really wish I'd done it years ago... Can't wait to slain it down the shop...
Crabon risers are going straight on the Oak if they don't stay on the Brompton... Back of the queue, the pair of ya!!
Does anyone have experience taking a pre 2016 Brompton from 3 to 6 speed using the chain tensioner, how simple is this to add to a bike built as an M3L?
New shifter, tensioner, cable, chain, sprockets,wheel, anchorage, DR, done.
I have decided that I need a Brompton and accepted that it will cost me. BUT the colours (the most important consideration, obviously) are all hideous - is it possible to get a custom colour? Best to buy all frame components and have them sprayed, then pay someone to put the bike together?
Raw lacquer or purple sparkle.
Grey sparkle coming soon.
My biggest regret is getting boring navy. Get something stupid and fun
Yes you can get custom paint, you cannot buy frame parts off the shelf, they have to be fitted to a bike or second hand. Best bet is buy a full bike. Some shops offer paint via themselves and will offset upgrade costs, buying back removed parts.
So you don’t pay full price to add components, meaning a sweet custom build doesn’t cost the earth.
Pm for details.
Go custom, stock is boring.
I want green glitter or iridescent red.
As new Brompton rolltop bag with all mounting hardware spam
Finally cleaned mine and put on heli tape at the cable rub points/old inner tube where the front wheel hooks in the fold. It's been a crap summer of cycling for me, so Brommie commuting and utility miles have been most of what I've done, but on a smiles per mile basis it's still probably my number one bike.
I cleaned my Brompton recently and discovered this. A couple of minutes with a file, and I now have an uncomfortable but serviceable Brompton 15-tooth sprocket bottle opener.
