Recommended Brompton spares when travelling abroad

You may be lucky enough to be going on holiday with your Brompton and want to know which parts you should take with you if Brompton spares aren’t available where you are going

The list is a guide only, and does not cover all eventualities

Some parts which are appropriate to the model in question, e.g. Sturmey Archer hub parts,  derailleur / non-derailleur parts

Before you go check the following on your bike - it will reduce a lot of the need for carrying spares!

But that being said - it's possible you will need some spares - especially if travelling on a long journey / somewhere with limited Brompton retailers
