OK so added 2 bikes to the stable this week. Just a case of 2 coming up at once and the deals being unmissable. Got them home, stuck some tyres on the fixed and then cleaned / waxed them both (I am a sad case....)

Langster has had a new wheel with a double fixed hub and a lovely ceramic rim too!

Brompton is a S2L and frankly is a lovely bike. I always thought they were a bit weird but have embraced the folding bike fold with great gusto. Enjoy the pics:

Also mastered the "fold" on the brompton and took a pic as it emerges!!

    Yeah on a standard height post thats where a 6ft rider needs it :lol:

    To unfold it takes me about 12 secs including tightening the clamps, the last step is the "Brompton Flick" to latch the back wheel!!
