Any Bromptonites on today? (new toy content)
I gotta new Brompton! Well refurbished, bought as scrap for £150 then £40 respray and £110 (trade) in parts and a full refurb.
What a fun bike, it’s already helped me out by letting me get a bus. Now to get a bag….C or T type?
Came in handy for getting a pint of milk this morning, looking stolen as I pedalled in the rain in my hoodie and trackies. Tasteful bar tape is temporary until new brake levers arrive. That was in the spares box for 11 years…I knew it would come in handy 😀Posted 5 years agobencooperMember

I just put schwalbe marathon pluses on mine. The original tyres are useless, it’s not easy fixing a puncture in the cold – the tyres are a pain to get off.
Also, I got one of those leather brompton saddle bags – 60 quid new but keep an eye on the ads, I got one, matches the brooks saddle.
Lovely bikes though, I go offroad on mine.Posted 5 years agobikebouyMember
It needs drops ( or flatties ) and clips.
I like the colour, bit Bauhaus, Brompton badge in black will finish it off.
Flat cap ( in black ) on backwards, racing mits ( white or black ) black tweed jacket, your daughters jeans right leg rolled up to reveal orange socks, a pair of Sidi’s in racing gold, a pair of wayfarers ( sliver rimmed ) a grin.
Then beat em at the lights.
Don’t thank me.Posted 5 years ago
