I sort of randomly won this Brompton in a CicLAvia raffle. I’m not convinced it’s for me but it’s a serendipitous bike project. Every new bike teaches me a bunch of things and so I’m giving it a good shot. I’ll probably turn it into a loaner if it doesn’t work out for me.
- Installed a pair of SimWorks Bubbly pedals, a SON XS dynamo wheel with an Edelux II and Busch+Müller Topline Plus, and the first-party eazy wheels.
- Replaced seat sleeve and degreased seatpost.
- Fixed front fender, tuned up brake reach, fixed cable end crimping, adjusted rear hub play, swapped to Ergon GS1 Evo grips, flipped the Pentaclip around, put a 38T chainring on, put a PAUL Gino light mount on, brought handlebar pitch inwards, and did my best for the seatpost slipping.
- Assembled bike and waxed chain.
- New bike day!
Ezy Superior quick release pedals and dynamo lighting for the toodling around bike.
A local Brompton dealer replaced the seat sleeve and it seems to have fixed the slipping seatpost.
Started getting the Brompton dialed in so I can give it a proper try. Really liking it so far! I had to take it to a Brompton dealer for a slipping seatpost though.
