    Ikea UK gives away 9000 folding bikes to employees

    What a great idea!

    "It's a Hpp Christms from Sweden as Ikea UK gives all 9000 'co-workers' folding bikes as this year's corporate gift. The largesse is even more impressive when put into market context: Brompton, for instance, sells c. 12,000 folding bikes a year so this move from Ikea is a big boost to the folding bike sector (and, from later tonight, there's likely to be a fair few blue folding bikes on eBay...)"

    As predicted by someone - you cannot *move* on ebay.uk for these critters being offloaded. Kind of sad the staff members couldn't think beyond hawking them and maybe even try riding them to work.

    (Though if they'd splashed a bit more and given people Bromptons or the Raleigh/Dahon Boardwalk clone I think maybe more people might have given them a try)
