No picture yet—I should have some by the weekend—but I finally broke down (and went broke) and ordered a Brompton. I ordered a last year's model that my friend Josef had at his shop in Cypress Park, Flying Pigeon LA
, and asked for a few modifications, such as adding dynamo lighting and lowering the gearing range slightly. Not everything's done yet—a couple of parts have not arrived—but all should be ready by Sunday.
As regular readers here may know, we borrowed Bromptons for a long train loop last year, which you can read about here
, after which Gina immediately bought hers.
I have held back, strictly out of miserliness, but finally took the plunge. The bike will be ready for its close-up soon, so watch this space.
