Brompton swytch conversion
« on: June 30, 2020, 12:49:24 am »
Does anyone have experience of this? My father has just received his kit but is having some problems. One is that with the new wheel and its special washers/spacers, it doesn't go into the forks as far as the old wheel. The result is that the brake arms are not really long enough, given that the pads were right at the bottom of the slot anyway.
Very interested to know whether anyone else has had the problem and want they did about it.

Is this problem because the new axle is a larger diameter than the original? If so, filing out the dropout slightly should solve the problem.
