Marathon Plus off Marathon on!

Yesterday I set to work on the mother of all cleans!

I had not bothered to give my Original Orange Brompton a proper clean for ages but after last Sundays  Gatwick Express where it got filthy, I had to. 

The first thing I did after cleaning it was to get rid of the London Edition Marathon Plus tyres in favour of the plain old Marathons which are narrower and allow a higher psi. I have never been a fan of the plus tyre and will be glad to be back with something I feel is better. 



The thing about cleaning your bike is you quite often spot more items that need replacing. My gear and derailer cables looked pretty ragged so I decided to replace them as well. This was done without incident which I was thankful for. 

My Original Orange Brompton is now looking back to the way it should and I have vowed to keep it that way.
