I don't know what it's like in the US but Brompton in the UK goes out of its way to protect local bike shops. You are restricted to buying your new Brompton from a local dealer and collecting it there I think. Therefore there is little discounting but very good customisation and support. As a tight fisted cheap ass always looking to save money it's slightly annoying but I can see why it makes sense for the brand and do like to browse bike shops even if I buy elsewhere.
