It's always about how much money you can make through "change" (or not changing as in the case of U.S. auto mfgrs and oil companies over the last 35 yrs), not how beneficial the change itself might be.
BBC Radio 4 PM News slot at 17:18 has a colour piece on the success of the Brompton folding-type bicycle.
" 'Fold-out' bicycles are selling like hot cakes." says BBC numbnutz reporter.
Mainly about retail profits, and not at all about bicycling. Tomorrow, a BBC piece about microwaved buns selling like folding bicycles.
That is not what I saw when I visited your Website. I saw this article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/7372956.stm
and I got another impression that this is the real future of folding bikes when most everyone adopts that commuting lifesyle-a victim of it's own success, rather than a simple success story. Please direct me to that original piece about the Brompton folding bike though.
