The Brompton got a service
Compton Cycles in Catford, South London where I bought the Brompton. They still have the widest choice of Bromptons in South London for a non-chain outlet. The cost of the service was £109 and it was done in a day. Which I thought was very good as I had to replace a broken chain mudguard; the rear mud guard which had fallen off somewhere and the elastic straps on the back rack (I am amazed these lasted 6 years). I was shown a carry handle for the Brompton made by Off yer Bike. (Forgot to take a photo.) Cost is about £40 but it looks like it is worth the money as you can carry the Brompton from the middle and not the seat which is awkward at times especially going up and down stairs. This is going on my Christmas list.
