Brompton mod a long time coming

To Curbside Cycle where they have the later-type roller wheels for my Brompton bicycle in stock. This is a retrofit item that reduces the risk of the bike falling over when parked. I'd almost given up hope of sourcing these spares. They fitted them at the shop after Ron Stockey found a screwdriver large enough to torque off the old rollers. With the help of Richard the salesman we got the job done. The new wheels were secured with hardened steel bolts, with Allen heads, and a touch of Loctite.
