It's cool they have their own version of a folding bike race like the smithfield nocturne, except they have ALOT more variety of small wheel bikes than just 90% bromptons.

Sweet - particularly liked the customised Canondale Hooligans and [in one vid] a brompton that looked like it was kitted out to weather a zombie-apocalypse. (1:51 into parking lot video)



That building looks like the Olympic stadium in 'Akira'
