Don't get me wrong; we have two Bromptons here and I love them dearly, but they are by no means perfect, and it's a shame some of the weaker aspects of the engineering and construction aren't addressed."
The other reviewers liked it too.
The Brompton in London is achieving the status of the Jesus Bicycle. They are now synonymous with 'folding bike . "Ooooh" said my 76 year old mother last weekend when I told her I had a folding bike, "Is it a Brompton?"
"Is it a Brompton" Thats funny. Makes a non Brommie person get there back up,but then its your mom so.
I know the feeling. Actually over here it happens with motorcycles. Soon as you tell someone you have one they instantly ask if its a "Harley" like there's no other bike. And some which are probably better bikes yet!
Ok i cant resist anymore,i ordered the Brompton book. We'll see what all the commotion is about. $26.32 Cdn. to my door, if customs doesnt catch it. Most often they dont.
