After 13n weeks the Brompton's finally arrived!!!
It was a long wait, in fact too long but they finally arrived. My wife and I took them for a very short ride through High Park here in Toronto just to try them out.
Her's is a 3 speed with the lowest reduced gearing you could order and the M bar. Mine is also a 3 speed with the 12% reduced gearing and the S bar. Both were suppose to have Brooks saddles but they didn't arrive and the front bag for her bike also didn't arrive. Hopefully in a week or so they will get here.
As for the ride, well what can I say, they're folders. This is just a different breed of bike. I chose Brompton because I like the folded size, that they are made in Britain, I could customize it at the factory level and I think one of the better looking bikes out there. Now I need to buy a couple of hard cases for them.
Now that the Brompton project is over, time to start a new one which I think will be a A. Homer Hilsen by Rivendell.
