When I got Mondrian, I was determined to not let that happen again. I recalled in an earlier post that Jeff from Bromfoot suggested using his product in order to prevent this from happening.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), Brompton had changed the shape of the folding pedal to more closely resemble the size of the non-folding pedal and the original Bromfoot would not fit on the 2012 and later folding pedals. The new folding pedals are about the same size as the non-folding one in the fore - aft direction, but the effective left-right width was narrower (I think it had something to do with a European law regarding lean angles, or something to that effect).
Fast forward to November 2013. I had bought Mondrian and Jeff had recently released the Bromfoot 2 that is shaped for the newer style folding pedals. It was go-time! I bought mine at Portapedal.

|Each of the fasteners had threadlocker compound applied to them.|

|The reflectors are integrated... no need to pry them off.|
|Make sure the Bromfoot 2 is in the correct orientation.|

|The Bromfoot 2 plastic will be the only thing to touch the frame when the pedal is overfolded, which eliminates scratching.|
So... initial impressions are very positive for the Bromfoot 2. I'll keep you updated if anything changes.
