I hope he picked up that coffee cup and disposed it properly (3:18), and not just left it there sitting on the curve.

Is it just me or were the folding sequences slightly sped up? Or maybe he's just really good at folding the Brommie.

On 2:13 it does not look like it is sped up, but on 3:18 the bike is just unfolded, not locked in for riding. The video is slightly edited to skip those steps (which makes sense, since they are focusing on other stuff). Good eyes though, Sir Bikesalot.
