I like that show- not all the sketches work, but when they do, very funny. And that was.
I doubt the bods at Brompton HQ would like it. It's increased the size of the folded package The odd-to-some engineering choices they make (eg the gearing...what's wrong with a regular 6/7/8/9 speed hub, really...?) are nothing compared to that Heath Robinson contraption. Don't know what all the bits do, but it would be fun to find out
You'll give people ideas with that LP. Someone'll turn up with that at the next Nocturne folding race, won't matter if they take a lap to unfold 'cause no-one could overtake you

Still not as advanced as LP's Mercton lightweight wonder lol. I figure that could take off in the wind anyway if you cycled fast enough!
