My old Air Friday - not quite as foldable but closer to a road feel and packs into a suitcase.

The brompton modification community has really taken things pretty far, reminds me of the original super modified titanium brompton.

The “ultimate folding bike” . Basically an all titanium brompton with a bunch of custom parts, saw it 20 years ago at interbike. Seems like he was on to something

Well done sir, great bike and glad to see folks putting in the 'leg' work on these smaller wheel folders, they can be wildly capable. I am not traveling as much now, but rebuilt and rediscovered the joys on my BF recently. Got mine down to 15lbs as a fixed gear and they are a blast to whip around on



Looking forward to any further refinement, but not sure what else you can improve upon!

Just curious, how many people are running speed play? Not that many or a good number of you guys?

I was thinking of doing a quick release Shimano SPD – SL pedal. But the only one that will work is the new Ultegra for my quick release axle

Oh I was gonna tell you that I’ve been able to make a titanium copy with the same T line shifting and flat bars etc… for only $2000

I think theirs is $6000 for the same

When folded, is it the same size as a stock Brompton with 16" wheels, or smaller or larger?
