    Thanks for your feedback! I’m flying to Poland with Wizz air, and back with Ryanair so should be an interesting experience/experiment. I managed to get it to fit inside my eBay samsonite so I’m hoping it’ll be okay. I just had to remove the saddle and pedals. There’s still a little room for a few items of clothing too. I’ll report back!

    Hi, I recently got my first Brompton, one of the main reasons being to travel abroad with, I have various family members around Europe etc.

    Does anyone have any tips/experience on flying with one? I’ve seen a few bits online, but I picked up a (what I thought looked) pretty big samsonite hard shell case and it just doesn’t quite fit annoyingly, I’m wondering whether removing some more parts will do the trick.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Failing that, you’ll probably see said samsonite on classifieds.

    I have a few nearly new bits that aren’t being used and could do with being moved on. All are in Portsmouth at the moment so add a few quid for postage unless you’re in the area.

    Cannondale Knot Hollowgram SL seatpost (for CAAD13/Supersix etc post 2020?) - used for probably less than a month before I unfortunately had to change bike - £80 posted

    Specialized power arc 143mm saddle - £50

    Selle Italia unused saddle - £15

    Zipp SL service course stem - 120mm / 6° - £50

    Ultegra direct mount brake callipers front and back, £60 for the pair.

    I purchased this towards the end of last year with the idea of using it at Herne Hill / occasional commute to the office etc. A few lockdowns, an injury and a move away from London have meant I’m not likely to need it at any point in the near future unfortunately. I’ll take more photos soon if it when I’m able to.

    It’s in great condition and had never been ridden outside when I bought it in November, since then I’ve only taken it outside 2-3 times.

    Dolan Track Champion frame (56cm)
    Sugino75 crankset
    Mavic Ellipse wheelset (also virtually unused)
    Ritchey bar/stem
    Unused selle Italia saddle
    Vittoria Corsa 25mm in decent condition.
    Comes with 48/49/50 tooth sugino75 chainrings and 14/15/16 dura ace track sprockets

    Based in W10 until the end of the month. I’m currently recovering from an injury so would rather not split or ship if I can avoid it.

    £750 ono
