My wife went and did it......

After being tired of me searching the forums and commenting on the utility and functionality of folding bikes, she ended up getting me one out of the blue!

M6R Brompton, artic blue and white, shimano dyno. I've only put about 10 miles on it thus far, but am looking forward to many more.

Very cool. Perhaps you should start obsessing and lamenting on other items, like large screen TVs, computers, high end audio equipment, etc.!
