    1. Many thanks Winson for taking the time to read my blogs.
      I must also apologise for the late reply.
      I had been away, overseas and just got back.
      I took my bike to Phnom Penh and cycled there.

      It will be great to cycle with you in Penang.
      Perhaps you could message me at the AhPek Biker FaceBook page. It will be easier to chat there.

      Cheers & Regards.

  5. Hi,

    Great blog and great list of Brompton accessories!

    Here's another interesting Brompton-specific accessory to consider:

    It attaches to the folding pedal to make it the same size as the fixed pedal and protects the frame from scratches when the pedal folds too far back.


    1. It will be great if you could leave you name. Or contact me through my AhPek Biker FB page :
