When I started this thread I posted a detailed report. All was well.
Then I had problems that neither the dealer nor Brompton could solve so I got a full refund as it was deemed “ not fit for the purpose “.
I posted that I would wait until the spring and try again.
Well I waited a bit longer as I was waiting to see what the surgeon suggested about a second knee replacement...... I got fed up waiting so ordered a new Electric Brompton H6R .
My original one was one of the first off the production line and there must have been a problem with a batch of motors, controllers or whatever to cause the problems they couldn’t fix at the factory.
I got the new one a month ago and so far have covered 100 very pleasurable faultless miles... it’s a different beast entirely.... very smooth and plenty of power... far more than the original.

Hi Big G
In Feb. & Dec 2017 I had both knees replaced. This May I had further knee surgery. It has not stopped me using my Volt. What did stop me was several spokes failing on the same rids. Had a total rim replacement and rebuild of the hub driven wheel. Back on the bike and it helps, with the knees.
Enjoy it!

I found cycling really helps after knee surgery... full movement and pretty good muscle strength bearing in mind I had my kneecap removed 40 years ago which loses a lot of “leverage “.
The reason I was holding back on purchase was I didn’t want a new bike sitting there and unable to use it for about six months!
The new one, as I said in my last posting, is fantastic and am using it every day while the medicos decide what to do with my other knee. It is helping keep / increase muscle strength which helps “post op” whenever they decide to sort it for me.
The other bit of great news is I’ve sold my standard Brompton (non electric) for a very healthy £880 which is truly amazing for a second hand bike!
