Review: Brompton FIRM Suspension Block

A few people have asked me about the FIRM Suspension Block I got for Bumble B a couple of days ago so I thought I would do a little review of it.

Installed Brompton Suspension Block on Bumble B
Got the FIRM Suspension Block from Brilliant Bikes (Loving these guys) for £10.98 If you want to use your original bolt and disc then its half the price for just the block. I just got the whole thing just in case there the bolt & disc had be worn out so the new block wouldn't go on properly.

The Installation:
Pretty easy just unscrew the original suspension block and screw in the new, simples

The Ride:
First ride with it was interesting, i could feel the road surface alot more though Bumble B and I felt more in control when I needed to make sudden moves. I could feel the different road conditions though him and just felt more solid. I read that its recommended if you wanted a more firm ride also for the heavier rider (shut it :P )

I'm guessing when I'm riding harder and faster I will get more responsive ride and be even more "Bee" like >;)
