Been a while, but after abusing this bike for so many years. It’s finally time to give this bike major upgrade to give it a lighter feel and kick when commuting around town.
Upgrades includes the following:
Saddle: fizik Antares 00
Wheelset: carbon SMC rims with hubsmith ceramic hubs.
Tyres: gum wall continental urban
Bolts: Brompfication ti bolts
Grips: Ergo GE1
Inner tube: tubolito
Rear mounted lights on saddle
Pedal: return back the Brompton folding, itching to get some lighter one later on.
Derailleur: Brompfication 2 speed
So far the weight is 8kg (without bags)
Very smart! Envy !! :) :)
Best thing about this is the happy accident of how compact it is when it is folded and how the Rapha messenger bag folds upwards to be inline of the profile of the folded Brompton.
Which is perfect for when it needs to be carried or required a cover bag.
