Dad, Cyclist. I own a Brompton and other real bikes :)
I'll be honest going from an H with S-Bars to an S with S bars was negligible in terms of ride position, not a racy as I was expecting (but I did get the Flame Laquer frame I always lusted after!!)
The cables were a bit pfaff and I'm sure eventually I'd have shortened them or bought a different set. Biggest issue is because I'd gone 'non-standard' what was the right cable set to buy...
The kousac low rise bar might be a good middle ground, bear in mind wider bars may scrape on the ground when folded
Check this link for heights and rakes, really helpful - https://www.lfgss.com/comments/14833166/
I bought a H6L a few years ago and realised quite quickly it was the wrong decision for me (I'm a small framed rider). I actually swapped the 'M' bars for 'S' on the same stem and it transformed the ride if I'm honest. I did eventually sell it and buy an S6L but didn't find it a massive difference TBH.
Obviously swapping the bars will lead to some extra cable, but I didn't find it unmanageable TBH
My money is on a Hadley, but would be interested to know
As an aside. What make is the green bag on the chair beside the Mack bag. Looks nice
Bugger, missed the Revo :(
Thanks, "off to check wallet"
What's the lume like on the GMT??
That is a cracking tool bag mate
How does this compare to the newly released M1 Mini’s ??
Looks like I need to order a pair for my bike!!
