GEAR CABLE ANCHORAGE
Genuine Sturmey Archer Gear Cable Anchorage for Brompton. This unassuming little piece of metal is essential for 3-speed and 6-speed Brompton bikes and does two important jobs. It connects the gear cable to the toggle chain in the hub and allows you to adjust the gears.
The gear cable bolts securely to the anchorage and then the other end screws into the toggle chain. The screw is then free to adjust making sure your gears are aligned perfectly even after cable stretch.

Brompton is the only company we've seen that answers all three criteria - and believe us, we've tried every brand out there. The reason others can't compete is because Brompton has answered a fundamental engineering problem. If a bike is going to unfold to a large footprint (which takes the twitch out) then it is unfolding to a bigger bike - and by all logic, a bigger bike unfolded would be a bigger bike folded. So, it's pretty much true that for most folding bikes they either have great rideability but poor transportability or vice versa. And nearly all of them are a mess to fold.
Not Brompton. Brompton has designed the Platonic form of all folding bikes. The bike folds to the smallest size on the market, unfolds in a highly precise and easy manner, and has the same axle-to-axle footprint as a hybrid bike. How did they do this? By not only designing a clever frame, but also designing some 1200 proprietary parts that make everything fit - and fit perfectly. Oh, and nearly all of this is made in England. No wonder this bike has a cult following.
