    Another folder joins the family

    Just before my disatrous ride, I went to buy some Cornish pasties, while looking for the shop, I passed an Evans Cycles shop with a two tone ex-demo Brompton for 400.
    I sent a pic to my GF who has been after a Brompton, she was fine with the unusual Green/yellow paintjob. So we decided to go for it, had to go around the corner to CyclePoint, a sister company to Evans Cycles.
    They had 5 or more to choose from, some missing things like the chain guard ring.
    Picked the best, even managed to blag a luggage block
    It's a 3 speed, in good nick, with Brommie tail-light, saddle, folding pedal, mudguards and bell. And with 3 month warranty.
    They still have a few more at the same price, but only at the Leeds CyclePoint, though I'm sure Evans Cycles would be willing to send one through the post.

    We've just been out for a coastal ride. Here are a few pics, we saw a motionless cyclist in the middle of a field, as we got closer, we saw it was an unusual scarecrow, on an old rod-braked bike!

    Cheesehead is a slang for people from the state of Wisconsin in the USA.



    I believe you are way better off by just buying a Brazilian Jersey for your girlfriend. You can't go wrong, anywhere in the world, with the 6 times champions!

    Aha! Thanks for the translation! Unfortunately, je ne parle pas football! Hate it! LOL! And my girlfriend would never wear it, she says the colours remind her
    of a daffodil! (the National flower of Wales) so maybe she can call it 'Taffy the Daffy'

    Further clarification: Cheese Heads are also Green Bay (a Wisconsin city) Packers fans (American Pro Football team that won the Super Bowl this year).

    It could also be called a "Duck" bike - University of Oregon Ducks - school colors are also Green & Yellow

    Cool Bike - Go Ducks!

    Green and gold are the sporting colours of Australia (you have to pick something else when you base your flag on another country's). And the South African Springboks use the same colours.

    Oh, and if you are looking for a multicoloured, you can't go past the south west trains hire bromptons in 3 colours
