Update on 2 people on 1 brompton. Yes, possible. 1 person balances precariously on the top tube, other person cycles as normal.
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.
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)
I'll try that later this week. Cheers
Holborn area. But really busy so would be easiest to just drop into bike shop and collect it when I am free. Thanks for the offer though!
Mechanics say it will take too long to work out the length needed. Folding and unfolding. Faff.
I have an M type currently and want to make the front end lower. Looked at just putting flat handlebars on but no bike shop in London is willing to cut the cables to size for me. What is the exact difference in height between M stem and S stem so I can buy a riser bar and fit S cables on?
