Park Tools website

I know it isn't specific to Bromptons but this is my go to website when I need to repair somehting on my bike.


How-to articles, with pictures and videos, for everything from changing a tyre to building a bike. An amazing service from someone who also makes great tools.

I bought a second hand MTB and have been slowly fixing/upgrading components and I've not found a single job that wasn't covered on that site. This has included:

1) Reshaping the crank holes when they go unevenly worn
2) Refitting the front mech
3) Truing a wheel after a slight "off".
4) Altering the compression in the front forks.

It's well worth a look, presumably some of it transfers to the Brompton.

Re: Park Tools website

Thanks for the tip - I buy most of my tools from them, and I also have a copy of their "Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair" although I haven't read it all yet.
