Nice picture, but in reality wouldn't all those Bromptons be tucked away in the footwells of their owners desks? ;)

Hope the owner of the red Brompton in the very middle doesn't want to leave early.

142+ CarryMe's
 
Excellent pic !

THE best bike to make this point though, would be to do the same with Pacific CarryMe's which stand vertically, on a tiny footprint.

at least 142 would probably fit in the same space

Sorry - I usually hate how this forum becomes like 'top trump's' but this would make the point even more so :D

In reality these bromptons would occupy indoor spots like under a desk inside the building

this just shows the real cost of cars

we have to build parking lots for them lost the land space just for them
a paved parking lot can cost thousands how bout pollution...how bout the cost to maintain them
the parking fees incurred...

car=$20K
driveway=$5k
garage=$10K
gasonline=
maintenance=
insurance=
car wash=
etc
etc etc


keep adding

a fully loaded brompton bike

REAL CHEAP only $1500
not counting that your gonna be in good health and not need $600 gym memberships

how much does a heart bypass operation cost if we I was to pay for it out of pocket ?
