Well, you have my condolences. But don't take it too hard: an expensive steel bicycle really needs a dependable finish, so if the lacquer manufacturer wasn't good enough, you are probably better off.
Of more interest to me.... So, Gringogus is getting a Brompton, eh? New toy, or necessity? That is, are you expanding the fleet, or replacing something that wore out? What's the whole story?
