    Wife's new Brompton

    Managed to score my wife a M6R-X (titanium) for £500. Very good condition, hardly used with all paperwork. Think this is the best bargain I've had!

    Brompton waiting time

    A tentative Brompton inquiry gathered the news that waiting time for a custom Brommie is currently 13 weeks. Longer than usual, a bike ordered today might not arrive before Christmas. My Brommie dealer, who professes no inside knowledge, wonders if the delay is caused by Brexit. I hate to...

    Bobbing Titanium Seat post for Brompton

    Hello everyone, I am in the midst of confusion over the use of upgrade material for my Brompton bike. I am confused about the use of titanium seatpost which also results in bobbing when pedaling. and on the other hand the use of aluminium is also very rarely used by Brompton bicycle users...

    Older Brompton frame hinge clamp bendy, flexy or loose?

    Hello I have bought a fairly well used Brompton from Ebay: a 5 speeder (I really wanted the gears and don't like the 6 speed Heath Robinson setup). I know, £1100 for a new one probably is better value than £500 for a 18 year old one, but if you don;t have £1100 and think the new gears are daft...

    Locking a Brompton

    Hello all, I finally got myself a 2nd hand Brompton, loving it so far. But today I found out that in the new workplace I won't be able to keep it indoors :/ There's a shed on site for staff to lock their bikes, but as you'd expect I'm very hesitant about locking mine, even if it may be safer...

    Brompton rim wear indicator pictures

    Hi all, I've have my brommie (S6) for a year now, and have happily commuted on it daily to and from the station at both ends of my journey in all weather conditions (including snow...), while my daily mileage isn't particularly high, I am conscious of the fact that I will need to be on the...

    Variation on a Nano conversion

    I've just done a Nano-based conversion of my 2006 Brompton, but I did not want to use the Nano electrified luggage block/converted bag system, but instead to have the battery mounted somewhere on the frame. I found a 36v bottle battery on eBay that is smaller than the usual ones, at 5.6Ah, so a...

    Brompton Rival?

    There's a new lightweight folder about, carbon frame with belt drive either single speed or Alfine 11. Looks tasty but quite a price. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/jul/21/ac-atto-folding-bike-high-performance-carbon-watch-out-brompton

    Brompton 2 speed shifting issue

    I have just given my 6 speed it's first proper service, after three years and ~8000 miles the rear tyre was down to canvas and the amount of gunk on the drive train needed chiselling off. :laugh: It's all cleaned up good, the change to kojaks has made it feel like a whole different bike, brakes...

    Brompton - advice on rear fold problem after Nano conversion

    I have had my 2009 M6R Brompton converted by Nano and it is now not folding right. Part of the problem seems to lie with the rear of the bike, which *shouldnt* have been affected at all by the conversion, so I am stumped. The rear wheel seems to be further from the frame than it should be and...

    Tips on Brompton rack use

    Can you provide any tips on efficient use of cords and hooks for securing items to a Brompton rack? On occasions you may need to carry this or that on the rack and I found that I am not that good in securing the items to the rack. Too often found that I nearly lost my stuff and I hardly ever...

    Brompton 3-speed hub internals

    Hi, I have a Brompton 6-speed. I really don't like the awkward gear arrangement, so I thought about "downgrading" it to 3-speed. The question: can I just replace the BWR hub internals with BSR hub internals? Will the mechanism just slip in, so I don't need a complete new wheel? (I know, I also...

    Hey- Brompton Bicycle Co.!

    I love my S6L, and find it’s design and functionality (mostly) timeless. It’s an awesome bike as-is. However I’d like to suggest some functional, evolutionary enhancements to further better it’s innate “goodness”: 1) How about laser engraving or even stamping some numbered index marks on the...

    Loose Brompton luggage mounting block

    I have one of these that I fitted to my bike. It's tightened to the correct torque and the mounting screws feel sufficiently tight. I do notice that there is a little bit of play if I waggle it from side to side and am a bit concerned that it should be a snug fit. Has anyone noticed the same...

    Anyone converted a Brompton from sweat to electric?

    I have a Brompton I hardly ever use Wife wants an e-bike I like tinkering Converting a B to an E feels like a lower cost option than a new e-bike as I know she gets on with the B, but just runs out of puff. Anyone converted a Brompton? What did you use? How did it go?

    Moustache Brompton

    I've had my S type Brompton for 5 or 6 years now but have always had hand discomfort when riding after 10-15 miles. I tried Ergons with bar ends and modified North Road bar, but the North Road rotated and the Ergons helped but the hand positions even with bar ends were too limited. Having...

    So I've got a Brompton

    Due to a family bereavement I've inherited this I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with it as it isn't the most practical bike when you live in the Peak District Seems to ride ok. I'll hang onto it and maybe it'll come in handy

    Brompton Stand

    On eBay B stands are around the £50 mark. I've just bought this fold-out childten's bike stand from amazon for £7 and it works fine. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M1HWKU2 (For use when I'm using a rack bag.)

    Another, “How best to carry a Brompton” post!

    just a little guidance request please! Well soon by cruising with our Bs, and will have to carry them a little way, from the room to the dockside, and wonder what might work best, as I’ll probably be carrying both for most of this. I have a Dimpa bag, but I’m not overly impressed with the size...

    A cheap(er) Brompton

    Word reaches me of yet another special edition Brommie. But this one has something worth having - a lower price. The Brompton 75 will be a limited edition of 75 bikes priced at £750. I'm not clear on specs, but I think the headline price will be for a naked bike - no rack or mudguards. The...

    Wobbling front wheel on my Brompton

    Happened for the first time a couple months ago - it's the cobblestones. The front wheel is the model with the dynamo fitted. Problem is, I didn't catch it until late - Paris isn't the quietist city in the world - but happened again yesterday. I'll tighten it up, of course, but am a little...
