    Thanks for the support guys. It wasn’t a nice experience, two guys posing as Deliveroo drivers; they had stolen the moped and the coat apparently. Knocked me off and stamped on me but thankfully it was in front of a school when people were picking up their kids so lots of witnesses!

    Anywhere good in South London/Wimbledon way for a full service of a Brompton? Got knocked off when someone in a Deliveroo driver uniform was trying to steal it off me.

    I have the Joseph Kuosac Flat Handlebars on an S-type stem. Just wondering if that would work with the Brompton phone mount without any issues? Quadlock have a Black Friday sale on at the moment so tempted to pick the case up for my phone!

    There are more photos on the attached link. This one did not upload for some reason. I have given everything a good clean today hence the watermarks! I have taken of the worst scratches that are present.

    I used this bike as my commuter for just over a year and a half between Balham and Queen Mary's Hospital and St George's Hospital (mostly at the latter). I had it serviced late November 2020 by Balfe Bikes. I was riding it for 3 months after the service and then stopped riding it since as my commute changed and was not able to find safe secure parking at my new workplace. Everything on the bike is fully functional. However, despite my best methods of storing the bike in the garage and general usage; I would suggest that the chain and cassette should be considered to be changed.

    The groupset and wheelset was transferred from another bike but fully functional. The specifications are as follows:
    Frameset: Brother Kepler Disc 2018; superficial scratches to the paintwork as pictured. Still completely functional.
    Groupset: SRAM Rival Hydraulic transferred from a Planet X London Road from 2016 apart from the rear derailleur (Medium Cage) which has been replaced over a year ago.
    Stem: Zipp Service Course Stem 90mm 6 Degrees
    Handlebars: Deda Zero 100 42cm Bars with Fizik Bartape
    Seatpost: Thomson Seatpost 410mm Inline
    Saddle: Selle SMP Well/Hell Saddle; I will be supplying a slightly narrower one than the one pictured as I prefer the wider one that is currently on this bike
    Chain: PC-1130 Chain
    Cassette: SRAM 1130 Cassette 11-36
    Wheelset: Novatec XD611/612 Hubs on DT Swiss rims (I believe they were taken from another wheelset but this was 4 years ago now) similar to 460db assymetric but wider originally built by @broken_777 . I have had the rear wheel rebuilt just under 2 years ago with DT Swiss spokes (cannot remeber which ones) but the front wheel is built with Pillar spokes.
    Tyres: Continental Grand Prix 4 Season 32mm Tyres
    Mudguards: SKS Bluemels
    Pedals: Look Keo Classic 2 Pedals

    I know I will get more for separating out the bike in parts but would rather sell as a whole package.
    Asking price is £750 collected in Balham but negotiable. Photos will be uploaded in the next few posts. If you do not the saddle, I can take more off the price but we can discuss.
