Myself on the Brompton ,St Annes.

Howth Fishing Port, The Brompton with new Schwalbe Marathon plus Tyres.

I broke the Metal Clip on the Gear change Mechanism on the Plastic Connector and had to Jury rig it with wire or I would not be able to change Gear. The newer Bromptons have the Sturmy Archer Screw instead of the Plastic Conncetor. I will have to get this screw connector. I am losing a lower gear because of it. Notice the Bottle Dynamo.

The Brompton on the Cycleway at Clontarf.

Back Home.

Squirrel in St Annes,when I tried to get closer it disappeared in the Bushes.
The Tyres were fine ,I did not see much difference in Rolling Resistance ,perhaps a bit harder of a ride. I will have to adjust the nose of the Saddle downwards. I did not bring the Spanner with me. Have a look at the accompanying U Tube Video below on the other post to see me in Clontarf.
