Sounds nice Garfield :-)

I really need to get out on mine - I collected it on 7th March last year (as part of our cycle to work scheme, ha!), and have ridden it only twice. I’m not the most confident of cyclists, and with everywhere being so busy now I’ve been a bit scared to actually use it.

I know how you feel jenny! I usually am a fairly confident cyclist, but that's on a road bike and I've not ridden much on the Brompton. I should get out on my other bike too...only I don't like the road users in my area...they are NOT considerate!

They are really good. Very fast but speed drops off sooner that q big bike when coasting. Handling is also a little twitchy.

I have the ML3 (3 speed, U shape handle bar) in standard gearing.

If I was buying again, I'd probably get flat handle bar and 3 speed with the easier gearing for getting up hills.

Oh no... I've not travelled far enough on mine to develop any yet...

Got something to say?
