    Actually, the next mod for my Brompton that I've actually got around to doing was modifying a Brompton S-frame carrier so that I could fit a Carradice Barley saddlebag on it and use it as easily removable front luggage. Think it goes well with the Brooks saddle! :)

    Finally got around to fitting Ergon Biocork GP1-S grips to my Brompton, ended up having to hacksaw about 5mm off the end of them to get them to fit properly, but all good now. They don't interfere with the fold at all.

    Nice, but what's going on with the bar tape? It's not even symmetrical, which would drive me mad!

    Congratulations on the retirement, if I've understood that correctly.

    The bike is retiring ☺️☺️☺️

    I’ve ordered a new rose pro cross apex. I’’m trying to sell it ad fast as I can so I changed the bar tape (i’m not a genius)

    Ah, I thought I might have that the wrong way round :)

    Is it getting replaced?

    Maybe I have found a buyer for the entire bike... it seems a little bit cheap, he is offering very little money... let's see :)

    Canyon Endurace CF SL DISC 8.0.jpg
    Here she is. My new road bike for 2018: Canyon Endurace CF SL DISC 8.0 with handbuild DT Swiss RR 521 DB cyclocross wheels for a bombproof driving experience :)

    Now lets hope 2017 will have a few more dry days to enjoy it before the winter kicks in :)

    In that case you seems to have longer legs than me :D
    or it is the geometry of the bike...
    On the inflite xxl I could not use this seatpost because it would have been to high :p
    It is of no consequences... Just interesting

    Sooo there is why you can use the seatpost and I can not. ^^

    So that would translate to a saddleheight of 830mm? According to the canyon site the saddleheight goes from 812mm to 912mm
