"Straight Outta Brompton" Video

Here is a nice little music video/action piece on the Brompton presented on You Tube:

Very nice.

People know how to make videos today and spend quality time doing them. I don't know if those folks work for Brompton but they spent lot of money and time to product that one! Brompton should hire them to do more.

I'm surprised the rear end didn't fold when they were doing those tricks. They probably locked the rear from folding so this is something your shoud not do. Near the end, they lock their new Brompton outside which is something one would never do.

The current Bromptons have a latch which stops the rear from folding when not desired.

They just showed the forks - I think they trying to illustrate a counter point to how easy it was to take a folder inside - but it would have been better if they used a full size bike for the one locked up.
