Brompton Hub Gear Cable Pulley Assembly - part update

In July (we think) 2015 there has been a small update to Brompton components

The picture below shows the old and new Brompton hub gear cable pulley assembly - it is used to route the hub gear cable (used on Sturmey Archer and SRAM / Sachs 3, 5 and 6 speed setups) through a ninety degree bend (using a pulley wheel inside the assembly to ensure smooth motion of the cable) just before it attaches to the cable anchor and the gear indicator chain.

Not to worry - the new pulley assembly is compatible with Bromptons old and new. Below shows the difference between the old and new version - it's just a change to the look really.

Just in case you are not quite sure where it fits - the below picture shows it in position on the Brompton.
