Damae's Cockpit.

This is a lot less cluttered than Stan's bike. The Brompton grips have been replaced with the same handlebar foam that has been fitted to the bar ends. This gives an improvement over the standard grips but the comfort is not quite so good as with the broader grips on Stan's bike.

In the lower part of the handlebars is the bike computer. A problem with all small wheeled cycles is that the standard length of wire for computers is just too short. The distance from wheel centre to handlebar on a bike like a Brompton is much more than on a mountain or touring bike. For the time being this works fine on Damae's bikes as the computer remains visible at all times.
