    Don't look at the forum for a few weeks and this creeps up on you.

    Will be there for sure.

    That is the stem adaptor I have been using for a while. It is branded Acor and are available on ebay for £7. There are pictures back in the thread.

    I now have the new M-bar, was going to use that without the adaptor to see how that feels.

    I need to put on a rack on my roller. Because of the shorter distance commuting on the roller is possible again. Is anyone using a seatpost mounting rack like the one Topeak make or similar?

    How do you find it? How much do you carry? Does it move around at all?

    @edmundro I am 5'11 and I ride a 56cm Steamroller and a 56cm Cross Check. The CC has a longer reach than the Steamroller, so I reckon a 56cm should be fine, comes down to your bar and stem selection.

    If you look back on this thread I originally hated the idea of Brompton specific luggage. I got a C-bag last year, and it rates as one of my best cycling accessories.

    That is the thing @edscoble I am going to do the hinge clamps, block and saddle myself. They are doing purely the conversion for me. I ordered the conversion parts through Evan using my C2W voucher.

    I have the M-fork, but I swapped out the bars for a stem adaptor and MTB riser bar some years back. (Photos back in this thread.) - now I am going to the new M-bar because I like it better, plus it means I can get rid of the adaptor too. I had new M-length cables fitted in February. So cable length is not a problem. Getting the stem adaptor off and the bars in is time consuming, I know it too me a while getting it in - but not all day. Then take off the brake lever, and mount new lever with shifter. Take SS tensioner off and replace with new derailer. Take current sprocket of wheel and fit the 2 new sprockets. Replace chain, get shifter working. If I wasn't a lazy sod, I would do it myself and just get them to fix the shifter. I might still do t.hat.

    The pimping has begun, new M-handle bars, 2-speed conversion kit, new suspension block and clamp set.

    @edscoble - Evans are telling me that fitting the 2-speed kit to a SS bike is an all day job, so it is a Gold Service. The part fitting is easy - but getting the shifter to work properly takes ages apparently. I call bullshit - what is the reality?
