Yes, it does need to be updated some as it was originally posted in 2006-my how times flies. Well, I now patronize a nice bike shop close by in Los Angeles that not only knows folding bikes, but is now a Brompton dealer itself (no more mail order, 30-100 mile trips to the nearest ones). He also services both my other 2 bikes (a 1972 Raleigh Twenty bike & 1970s Vintage German made Breakaway Frame bike). Plus there are several more bike shops that now offer to both service and sell Bromptons in the Greater Los Angeles area too. That is not counting other makes like Dahon/Tern. So a folding bike user has many more options than was the case in 2006.
