    Personally I'd set an age for them to ride on most roads (arbitrarily, 13) by themselves. And then I'd make every effort to ensure they learn all the safety rules by then.

    I bought a Brompton with rack because it could roll - while folded - like a dream (in theory - required some tinkering). It's amazing for train stations and malls and supermarkets. It is an...

    Ivory looks good for a retro touch... though I think white looks fantastic paired with any color. The contrast just makes the other color pop.

    Why Turkish Green? What's so special about the colour? I've got a TG Brompton for my wife but it's always felt a little feminine to me.
