Brompton hinge Tip by Wei Shuan
Wei Shuan is a master Tinkerer and he has a brompton. This is his simple, effective tip on the hinge... I think it is brilliant!
More details by Wei Shuan... "For those who often commute with Brompton will know how irritating to fold the bike. The clamp rotates when you loosen the lever so you must hold the clamp in place when you tighten back the lever. My simple DIY will solve your problem. All you need is just stick a small piece of aluminium sheet (I got from Daiso) onto the clamp and add a spring (which I dismantled from hand soap dispenser). With this modification, I can now easily fold/unfold my Brompton while keeping the clamps in position at all time."
