    Brompton quick release axels

    I am expecting my first brompton soon, a single speed with S handle and mudguards. I know already I want to change the axels for quick release. Sjs cycles seems to have one for the front, but can't find any rear one. Has anyone done this change? The idea of carrying a spanner on longer rides to...

    Brompton renovation

    Well, renovation is probably over-egging it. I got our ancient folder out of storage the other day, pumped up the tyres and gave it a clean. Discovered a broken rear spoke. Of course I had nothing of that length in stock, so had to measure it and order one. In removing the wheel (having...

    Like a Brompton but not like a Brompton

    Afternoon all hope you are staying safe. So I love the look and the idea behind foldable bikes but what if I wanted something like this but I dont need the folding bit. I commute to work almost all year round except for snow & ice and its an 8 mile round trip from Cheshire country lanes into...

    Easy wheel extention bar for Brompton

    Jannie and I have both had our Bromptons for a while now. We ride them almost everywhere and do not need to wheel them about on the rack wheels very often. But even when we move them for storing them it is obvious that they lean away from the crank and are unstable. I recently decided to buy...

    Brompton derailleur/tensioner options...

    Inspired by my other thread about winter, and this video that I posted on YouTube a couple of years ago, I wondered if anyone has any recommendations for alternative derailleurs that aren't fully enclosed with the chain guides so they're easier to clean. View: https://youtu.be/E4nh0aEiBeI Be...

    Another Brompton Project

    Well I’ve done it, after a few days of haggling, I’ve managed to find a cheap Brompton. I’ve wanted one for ages but also I like to fiddle and fettle, so this one fits the bill perfectly. It’s 3 speed model, it needs a new chain ring as it’s bent but I’ve already sourced a replacement, let’s...

    A five grand Brompton

    There's a heavily modified Brompton on ebay with an asking price of £5,500. It appears the bike is owned by someone in Reading, Berkshire, who says it weighs 8kg, but is still practical to use. Looks a bit lacking in the spoke department to me. Interesting as an exercise of the possible...

    Recommend pump for Brompton - mini/lightweight Lezyne or Topeak ?

    Hi I need to purchase a pump for my Brompton with Schwalbe Marathon tyres. I'm wanting mini / lightweight - with a hose - maybe can be stored in the frame - where the Brompton tool kit goes - but not essential. Can anyone recommend a suitable , budget-end Lezyne or Topeak pump (with hose)...

    Just ordered a new lightweight Brompton

    In a complete contrast to my normal impulse buying (especially any time concerned with cycling), I have taken well over two years to decide how to spend a legacy I received from my late father-in-law. I considered putting together a Fixe, flirted with the idea of a mountain-bike, but in the end...

    Modding a Brompton B75

    I've been hankering after a Brompton for a while now. My daily commuter is a Cube mtb that I put an electric kit on. I can go anywhere on it and won't be getting rid of it but it is a heavy lump to take in the car. So for summer use when I go away for weekends I want a folder. Saw the B75 this...

    Should I buy a Brompton?

    No idea where the desire has come from, but I really want a brompton. But I don't know what to use it for? I've got a commuter for the 6 mile work trip, and a roadie for the weekends - so why should I get a brompton? My wife has done a lot of eye rolling...

    Red Brompton

    This Red Brompton was stolen with other bikes from Atterbury Street, London this afternoon. A passer by took this photo of a guy attacking another bike with a grinder. They were too afraid to approach them. Notice how he is wearing a helmet and viz belt to blend in as a cyclist. Any...

    Brompton 3 speed gearing question

    Just had a test ride on a standard 3-speed Brompton form Evans in Leeds. Was OK really but I found the gearing to be a bit high. I think I used 3rd just once in the few hours I had it. Was nearly always in 1st with the occasional relaxed cruising on the flat in 2nd. I'm not a fit or fast...
