I'll just get the 52T chain guard (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32922258464.html) and see how it goes. At €20, it's not worth trying to file down a chainring.

Thankfully, bikes are allowed to go to work, food shopping, etc.

[Tern] Rapid Transit vs. Trolley Rack?

Hello,

Someone I know who bought a Link D8 is having a difficult time moving the bike folded, and is looking at the Trolley Rack. Unsurprising, but a Brompton was a bit overbudget.
