A BROMPTON FOR THE MODERN RIDER

Brompton

Other conversions I have done and answers to some of the questions I get asked


Rolhoff 14 speed - I found the gearing too low, even with the smallest sprocket and largest chainwheel I felt there were too many low gears for everyday use, not worth the high cost!


Nuvinci variable speed - lovely smooth quiet operation with no steps in the gears, down side was the weight of hub 2.6kgs.


Sturmey 8 speed - was a cost effective conversion for the customer (but not so much for me due to the chain tensioner mods) hub was found to be noisy and prone to bearing wear and spares proved difficult to obtain


Sturmey 5 speed - using the new alloy shell SRF5(w) - a cost affective alternative to the 3 and 6 speed offerings.

Brompton Alfine 11 speed conversion

 Thanks to all the past customers of my gear conversions, I’m sure I will still be working on Brompton projects sometime in the future, a commercial derailleur system has been on my mind for a long time and my folding SPD pedal and International travel case that doubles as a usable luggage bag could also be revisited, feel free to email me if you have any questions about your Brompton projects
