I change the handlebars on my Orange Titanium Brompton

There isn't really a huge amount I have left to do on my Orange Titanium Brompton but the one thing I wanted to swap out were the standard M-type handlebar for a rider bar by Joesph Kuosac. Today I made the necessary changes.

I have this bar (black version) on my Orange Black Special Edition and have always liked it a great deal. There is nothing wrong with the stock Brompton M-type bar and I have found it comfortable. I do however like the look of the Kuosac bar a little more. 

Fitting was pretty easy this time round. (Have a search on a previous blog post in which I butchered me trying to fit the black version)!! The bar could have been put on as it. There are helpful little markings on the bars and I took off 5x each side. 

If anything the bar is about 2.5 cm lower and I can live with that. It is so slight that I hardly notice it and if anything I like it more. The good thing was that I didn't have to do anything with the cables as they just fit. 

It might seem rather foolish to change the handlebar just because you like the look of it better but hey, it's my bike and it makes it a little more bespoke to me. 

Stay safe out there people!!

The before
