    Thanks, Mulleady, I'm definitely going to have to order one now. Not that I don't like my racing green S6L, or my red (because it was 25 cheaper) M6R, I do, but neither of them are capable of time...

    When I had a car, I was paying for a loan as well as fuel, tax, insurance, etc - the thousands I save go to charity and onto my mortgage, saving me even more over the long run - I might even pay it...

    I didn't mention before that I work nights. As I understand it power stations keep making energy nobody is using at night, is this correct?

    You've all brought up some interesting points, but on...

    Intriguing, but somewhat limited. My Brompton can do the shopping cart thing too (albeit not overly stable) in a partially folding state, and folds down further for easy storage and transportation.

    I grew up in a tiny village, 5 miles from the nearest small town. A bicycle was my first taste of freedom (and I still remember the euphoria when the stabilisers came off when I was 4).
