Famous People Who Cycle Folding Bikes?

I was wondering if many famous people cycle folders. I heard Kate Moss has a Brompton and David Byrne(Talking heads frontman) cycles a folder. Anybody else know any names ? Or know any sites with photos of stars on their folders?

Thanks
Shay

James May (telegraph-reading presenter of petrol-head tv show TopGear) is a bromptonaut. I saw a birthday card in waterstones last year that had a picture of Twiggy on a RSW 16 like that excellent one of Ringo. And someone posted a pic of NY actress ChloŽ Sevigne (American Psycho, Kids) on an old no-name shopper a few months back too.

Moritz Volz-Fulham football player...

I spend as much time as I can riding around the streets of Fulham on my folding bike. The folding bike should be an Olympic competition by the way - I'm going to win gold in 2012.

Ehh, $1050 for a rebadged Dahon with an SRAM DualDrive isn't that outrageous. I bet it's heavy, though.

Going OT here, but that earlier model F600 (in the UK at least) does not come with Dual-Drive. It has a 9 Speed Deore rear mech only.

I like that ChloŽ's folder has a Ladybird bell on it. Sorry - don't know the make though it looks like one of those gereric eastern european ones that got rebranded into just about every make.

Viscount Linley (The Queen's Nephew) uses a Strida. He recently was in the news for taking his daughter (14th to the throne) on the rear carrier ..... not recommended but we've all done it

I read an article about there being Britaney Spears pictures on a folder on the internet.

Um just reread the article. Sorry, 'on a' should read 'of her'.
