Great pics! I love the one of the bike folded under the desk. That pic illustrates so well one of the advantages of folding bikes. Here is wishing you many troublefree kilometers.

Getting the bike paint colors,to match the , blue/black bag , is nice,
the black/white bag would need a Black/white bike..

For^^ above^^ .. visual clues suggest an S6R + the Dyno hub Kit.

Is that front Ortlieb bag a Brompton option? I don't recall seeing that...

[edit] don't worry, found it on the Brompton UK site...

It was HK$12,519 after 10% discount. The price had been rising since I ordered the bike half a year ago.

Yes. First, the SON hub dynamo was out of stock in Brompton, so I had to wait for 3 and a half months. Then, Brompton shipped a wrong colour bike to the local dealer, so the local dealer had to order it again for me and it took another 2 months. Did I break the world record of the waiting time for a Brompton?
