Planning for travel has been messy lately. Take June for example; getting away to the North Coast from Sydney kept being disrupted but eventually everything came together & we headed off for 5 or 6 days.
Hmm, Covid events happening in the Eastern Suburbs? Better get going? Well, we got away – but the Covid event grew & even though we left well before the total lock-down for Sydney was announced, the “stay home” rule was applied to people like us. So, here we are – staying home amongst people who can dine-out, visit wineries, clubs, etc! Oh well, we can get out for exercise & for me it’s Brompton-heaven.
Clarence’s lightweight conversion continues with various tweaks & bits. The latest is greatly appreciated; an extra, lower gear! Now the cassette setup has 11/13/17/20T sprockets & lots of tinkering has shown that the 20T cog is the biggest the standard chain tensioner will cope with. That’s ok, I’m extremely happy with the outcome; my extra-light Superlight is awesome!
Clarence is looking quite spiffy! Glad to see you post, and to know you are getting out a bit. Here in the USA we’ve been essentially in lockdown since March 2020, and, because of our location, not even getting out on pedals. It’s been interesting . . . and likely to continue, as Covid-Delta has just begun its spread throughout our contry. Hope you stay safe and well, and that Australia continues to escape the worst of the pandemic.
Very impressive “diet” on Clarence. Just wondering whether it included a titanium seat post?
Yes Ron (Brompfication), probably the only steel bits now are the mainframe & stem (wonderful what a long lockdown will do)
