Hello all, on the fence here. While looking at folding bikes, Brompton is just a very very nice bike, its compactness (according to my limited research) is just unmatched by offerings from dahon or Bike Friday. That is much needed in my multi-modal commute. In addition, from the reviews I read, it seems that a Brompton can handle moderate distance (<20mi) rides just fine. Of course, all the insightful raving on the intranet is helpful.
What is keeping me on the fence is the price. The bike, the parts and especially the accessories. I mean yes it is all hand made in Britain; but at the end of day it is still a chromoly frame w/ house part and a 20 years old patent. And 200 dollar for an attachable bag? 150 for rack and fender? really now.
Anyway, just wondering if anyone that did not enjoy their purchase and regret shelling out for the bike.
