    Guess how many Bromptons can park in a parking spot?

    Hello,

    Can anyone guess how many Bromptons can be parked in a typical parking spot? Sorry, if it has been posted.

    Cool pic. Now let me just grab mine, it's the red one in the middle... oops, sorry for the domino effect everyone.

    Seriously though, this reminds me of the bike rack in our office that has just a tad too tight layout. If there's a vacant spot in the middle, it's impossible to put the bike in without clashing with other bikes. I'm sure one of the selling points for the rack was how many bikes it can accommodate per the area it occupies.

    My Brompton does not take any parking space up at work.

    It sits parked in the corner of my office

    BTW that pic is great but has been kicking around for quite a while now.

    Hmmmm.... seems they could have added another 10 to 20 Brommies if they tossed a handful on top of that lot!
