Hi Mark, because time has a habit of slipping away, I suspect I'll be fitting the 40T chainring to the new Brompton before I consider what gearing to run on Ralph? Of course, having the parts available now makes it easier to make a quick changeover if necessary. As for chain lengths, I see Simon Koorn's article in the BromptonTalk Wiki doesn't cover the crank sizes of 40 or 39T & so I expect to choose the link numbers when fitting up the crank changes (ie comparing chain lengths with the Brompton unfolded & parked & aiming for the shortest practical length?)
I'll be at CheekyT before 4pm Saturday & "helping" with the pizza at the park. We're still deciding on how/when we get to SOP on Sunday.

Thanks for your reply Ian. Yep, time powers on, so no reply required; see you on Saturday.

I did see the Tiller Cycles offerings previously, but the poor quality photo of the 40T with chain guard had me second guessing. Be keen to hear from you how satisfied you are with the quality, although I suspect the Brompton stamped crank gear are Sturmey supplied anyway. Always knew I would gear down eventually (it's a heart thing), so might as well share the journey with you. All associated readings to date advise removal of two links for 39T.

Happened to be out yesterday on the new arrival, so took the opportunity to venture to Saturdays nominated venue. I'm on the limit with the 44T here. Having once lived and worked in Balmain, know that some parts are very hilly.

So, it will be x 3

Hi Ian,

Very much enjoy reading your posts.  

I too had a great day watching the action at the Brompton Aussie champs.

Here is wishing Mrs Brompton/Aussie a speedy recovery.

+1 to what Kirsten said. Get well soon Mrs Aussie.

A vegetarian now you say SAKdeVEGAN. I know some swear by this discipline. Dr. Michael Mosley is coming around also, but not strictly so. If it has you back on the bike injury free and enjoying good health, that's a bonus. I once did a 10 day Vipassana Meditation course in the Blue Mountains, which included Noble Silence throughout this period. If I could have spoken, at that time, it would have been to bestow accolades for the delicious full vegan food that was cooked on site for the two meal a day sittings ....... start again ...... start again

Saint Nick called today & because I've been good, there's a new Brompton arrived in the country. I shall be patient while the elves do their thing (should give me time to find room?).
