Nothing new, really. If you need the quickest and smallest fold, sure, Brompton. If not, I'd spend the dough on a Tyrell, a Pacific Cycles or a Dahon Dash.

Brompton isnt the fastest fold.
Its not the rolls royce of folding bike.
Easy Media cliches from people who have not done research.
Yawn.
Not anti Brompton comment, anti hype comment.

Yeah,all style,no substance. Forget to mention cost and wait time(if you're not buying straight off the floor),and ride quality doesn't touch my full-size bikes with 2" tires. Horses for courses;Bromptons have their uses,but aren't perfect.
