  • Hi Guys,

    Sounds like a great idea. I took my brompton out camping for the first time last week and had a great time.
    Do you have any sample pages from the booklet?

    Thanks

    A few sample pages would be good. Or if you’re unwilling to give away any of your content (which would be fair enough), how about a table of contents?

    I spent two months touring with my Brompton in Japan last year. Its portability made multi-modal travel so much easier than my previous trip with an LHT. On Japanese trains, you must bag bicycles on all trips, regardless of distance. The Brommy was great for that!

    Nice book. Finally some details on how you travelled with brompton. As i am also a brompton-traveller, there are some interesting tips, for example how to carry the back pack hanging on the saddle and using the rear rack as a base. Interesting also the use of Ergon grips with bar ends, but as I use an S type, don’t have to cut the ends. Greetings from Milano & Trieste (Italy). Stelio

  • Very probably interesting reading. However I did two big touring trips on my Brompton around the UK in ’04 and ’06. Although I towed a (3′ 8″ wide, 10/11 stone) trailer behind me. I don’t travel light…

  • That’s a lot of weight! I did a trip 65 Km a few days ago in Ireland (my first one) and I did it with a carry freedom trailer and a 3 speed Brompton towing 32 kg included the trailer weight and I need to walk in some of hilly ways.
    The touring guide will be interesting, I looking forward to see the customer reviews! See my trip on my blog http://www.blog.jfcarchitect.com/travel/cycling-arround-lough-allen-carrick-on-shannon/

    Purchased & read.

    Thank you for the new nuggets of information, in addition to bringing together the pieces you had already published. This is great inspiration and a handy reference guide!

  • Nice job!

    Are you planning to revise the book as time goes by, and if so, are folks who downloaded early eligible to get the updates?

    Also, I was a little confused about the pedals… I THINK what you’re trying to say is that you took a spindle from some other model of MKS quick release pedal and installed it in the Lambda, but it wasn’t clear from the text. Is that correct, and if so, which MKS pedal did the spindle come from?

    An inspiration! It was an idea that made us decide to do some Brompton touring. We will soon be undertaking a ten week tour in Australia next week Our blog is :-

    The hardest bit for me so far is trying to fit a new swalb marathon tyres to a back wheel which seemed almost impossible!! On the first attempt I must have pinched the inner tube so the job had to repeated. I am not looking forward to sorting a puncture out when on the road.

    I highly recommend the book.
    We have had Bromptons for about 7 years and mostly used them on trips when we are not touring but want to ride around cities.So far, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Sydney (home), Perth Adelaide.
    We use Surly LHTs for touring.
    But the book has got us thinking. If we can tour with the Bs it will be simpler and moe convenient.
    As suggested in the book, we need to improve the gears.

  • HI I already purchased this book and book is really inspiring as was whole brompton adventure of Russ and Laura. I like the unorthodox way of packing and even as long time brompton user who already was camping with my bromie I learned couple of tricks also. Thank you for it.

    I am about to undertake a touring trip with the T-Bag in the front and a Shuttle Bike case (is a carry-on luggage) from Ortlieb in the back for a week in Switzerland. Will post comments later. Martin
