Anyone going to be bidding for a one off?
I just went crazy and bought some Honjos... they are super lovely but monies
My rear one snapped a week before OG lockdown. Replaced in a instant with another Brompton one and have used the bike twice since 🤦🏻♂️
Any alternatives to the BBBR platform about? The Eerder Metaal is sold out.
Ill speak to vincent tomorrow about getting a batch sent over and let you know! (Eerder)
I had a tumble forward on my Brompton. Body took most of it thankfully. The rack mount has cracked a tiny bit but bag still secures on without wobble. Wondered what I could use to try and fix it?
Depends on the type of plastic but a soldering iron?
Unfortunately, this won't repair.
Replace the bag frame.
Not sure if Brompton sells just the frames anymore, otherwise I would
You can get them super cheap from Ali Express if you are willing to wait a couple of weeks

Afternoon everyone, new poster here. I've just done 25km on mine, the seatpost dropped about an inch in that time. Ive seen photos of cracked seat tubes on here, any tips? It's probably done less than 100 miles. Thanks
where did you get the bike?
have you adjusted the seat clamp at all?
How many threads are out of the nylock?
Just nip up the nut on the seatpost QR. They're not tight enough from new.
From On Your Bike, about a year ago. Never got the chance to take it back for a follow up service as it was the first lockdown, and been on my other bikes all year, hence the low mileage.
There's pretty much bang on 2 threads showing, don't think I've adjusted it
On that note I’ve got a standard seat post going if anyone is in need!
Give it one full turn clockwise with a 10mm
Will do, thanks. Any particular torque, or dimension between outer edges of the frame lugs?
The gap between the inner lugs is something like 17mm untensioned;
The torque is 4-7nm
Roughly 3threads out on a new bike
Once the sleeve is worn you just tighten until it’s in need of replacement.
How long does a sleeve last?
@Rhobbs, does the kinetics test triangle use a standard Brompton single speed tensioner when using a hub gear?
how often you raise the post
how clean the post is
clamp tightness etc
often a number of years though
depends which hub gear!
for Alfine its a 2/6 modified to suit the chainline; I have spares of these on my desk
for Rohloff you can use either 1/3 or 2/6
Thanks, would be For alfine. Do any of the aftermarket bromtification/ti parts workshop ones work at all? Or does it have to be the one Ben supplies?
