    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 ?
