16 speed Brompton: Part 3

I’m still waiting for some spokes from the UK to do the wheel build. SJS Cycles have assured me that they should get them from their suppliers next week. So hopefully not much longer to wait. The question is when will I have time to build the wheel? In a month we will be packing up for our emigration to Norway and I have loads of work to do on the van still.

In the meantime, here is a link to a Shimano Alfine conversion done in the UK. These pictures show how you can avoid the gear change cable fouling the front wheel hook when it clips onto the rear fork during folding.

That’s a neat solution.
