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

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 ?
