After years of seeing the wheels being built, early 90s, and helping load them onto the van I finally got one last year. (bike that is)
My first mod is copter tape on the main tube, there will be lots more.
I have an Ikea bag, haven't tried to get the bike in it yet.
Will keep an eye on this thread, lots of interesting stuff on here.
Hi. How do you get to peoples bike builds??The basket was from Decathlon
Bracket was from fleabay very similar to this
I used an old car numberplate as strengthen plates, but it was quite an easy modification. @JhnBssll has done a similar mod but his is better, his basket has the mounting holes lower so he didn’t need to add strengthening plates, it’s detailed on his Brompton build thread.
I've ordered this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brompton-bag-bracket-adaptor/113350266754?_trkparms=aid=111001&algo=REC.SEED&ao=1&asc=20160908105057&meid=1fc1955144f345b28786ca0904ccb8a5&pid=100675&rk=1&rkt=14&mehot=pp&sd=113350266754&itm=113350266754&pmt=0&noa=1&pg=2380057&brand=Unbranded&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci:40a1cc6e-af19-11ea-bc77-624afbd89947|parentrq:b880f3001720aa4706753d25fff5953c|iid:1
Now the hunt for a basket begins. Sorry for taking over the thread with this!
Ooh ta. Just ordered !This doesn't really qualify as a hack in the way that jubilee clip does, but I went one stage further and got the Joseph Kuosac rear block.
All but eliminated any pedal bounce/bob.
Been running that for 2 1/2 years now and it's one of the best upgrades I made. I tried the jubilee clip first too.
