You're a good man ! I'll hopefully know one way or another if I need to take advantage of your very kind offer In a few days time.
This is not how to do business.
Just replace it and take it up with Brompton later.
Ordered the newest levers/brifters today, those and the black Sugino 75s left to go on and the transformation will be complete!!
PSA, sort of, those IKEA bags that fit Bromptons were in IKEA MK for £3 today. Thimpu I think? None left in the dump bin, would have looked around for more but CBA with the hordes ..
Dimpa bags are highly regarded
That's it, Dimpa. Sounds Himalayan somehow.
Ikea at the weekend, what are you thinking? Do you Ikea on a bank holiday too?
No, not at all have a spare standard seat post, and they are not worth anything, as lots around as they are changed for the extendable post. As I said I am only keeping it to use as an extension. So a bent one would make no difference to me.
Thank you for the sentiment tho.
That is why you are the LFGSS brompton dealer of choice ;)
Also to anyone still using the old plastic body levers, upgrade them to the newer metal body levers as they improve even the old side pull brake calipers.
Plastic body levers on new brakes is actually not terrible too...
From junk to happy
Shop revamp is taking place...
Steve parry popped in too, he’s done all the modifications, years before anyone else
No idea, on the early levers on later brakes as I didn't go that way.
What is the brake pads that are good? Swissstop or koolstop?
Also nice rack and baskets.
Ha.. first time in there in a decade, necessary purchase. It was a kind of hell as expected.
Where is this shoppe ?
Brompfication products now back in stock too!
We in bizniz...
general question for all.
What is the maximum weight you would trust on a Brompton?
(friend and I fit under the max weight limit but don't want to snap anything)
Well given my bent seat post saga I'm not sure.
I weigh roughly 13 stone. I don't think I'm particularly fat. But the seat post still has managed to bend itself.
I think the upper weight limit is 16 stone from memory?
I’m 95kg or so. Only had issues with a bent post when dropping off bus curbs seated...
Other chap with the b75 is just unlucky and the shops are being shit.
Brompton recommends max 110kg (including luggage). My friend and I are both sub 55 so should be fine on the one bike. I'll test it out on one of the Brompton hire bikes first and report back.
You're going to try and fit two people on a Brompton at the same time?
At 55kg you have nothing to worry about!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
