I am a university student, and I'm sure many of you recall that money is in short supply when a student.
I live about 45 minutes (walk) away from University, and would like a Bike to get me there sooner. So I was thinking the Brompton M3L.
But where I live (West Yorkshire), we have a lot of hills, and not many cycle paths, so the bike would be ridden on pavements, and sometimes the pavement edge is an inch or two higher that the road surface, so you have a bump.
I weigh 83 Kg, and I am 175 cm tall (or short ). The reason I want a Folding Bike is because my House is basically a Flat, and there is no room for any other sort of bike, but a Folding one.
My question is, would the Brompton be OK (for at least 6 years) with the road bumps ..etc for an overweight guy like me ? Or should I not bother with a Brompton ?
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
