Herbert’s Big Apple Brompton

Herbert wanted a Brompton with the Big Apple tyres – these are 2″ wide but use the smaller 305 wheel size so only work with disc brakes:



It’s now back in Germany, and looking fantastic with matching mudguards and a front motor system:

  1. Hello,
    Do you this conversion would work without disc brakes, ie with caliper brakes with a longer drop and re-modelling of the existing rear triangle?

  2. Thank you. I’ve just realised that the existing fork would also be too narrow for these tyres – so maybe not a practical conversion
