A while back there was a thread about aleged 'bias' in AtoB magazine in favour of a certain diminutive small-folding commuter bike.
I don't read the mag so couldn't really comment. But now there's a digital edition I can kinda see the point.
Exhibit A (part 1)
Exhibit A (part 2)
To save you the time I'll paraphrase the 'review' the links above lead to.
"I rode 3 bikes, a Bike Friday, a Birdy, and a Brompton. The others were awful even after I welded several tons of new crap onto them, but the Brompton was the best [sneer] because it's British and it can go a thousand miles with no effort and because I can get two hundred of them into the boot (trunk) of my [atonishingly vulgar] Bentley..."
What an idiot. Worst road-test ever. Bikes aren't even comparable as they're kind of for different things.
Next week: 'Sandals versus Airmax Runners versus Steel-toecapped work boots. Which make the best wedding-wear?'
Ugh. I'm ashamed to be on the same island as this fool.
I'd like his workshop though....
