traveling in style on a Brompton bike
Yes, I had to leave my Brompton at home because of the bad weather. Rainshowers and strong wind.Walter (Nimeus)
I am so glad I took my Brompton for a service, I was initially reluctant because it worked (and very well too) plus I knew that it would cost a bit.Well, t looks like I forgot how smoothly a Brompton can run. It now involves minimal effort to propel myself across Londons fine streets, the bike is smooth and quiet, and i no longer feel its screaming abuse at me for being a cheapskate. I will now get my bike serviced every year (I do roughly 6-8000+ miles a year.) My bike only went through a cheap service after a year and a half of unserviced use and I found that whilst it cost me £25, nothing was done that I didn't do regularly, so it was a waste of money. Therefore, after a while, I bit the bullet and took it to another bike shop (Phoenix Cycles in Battersea), it cost me about £130 for both service and replacement of quite a few worn parts, but the difference is very much noticable. Worth every penny.J
Glad to hear everything is now ok even if your wallet is a lot lighter.
