This is one question I get asked a great deal and it is territory I have covered many, many times. I will however answer the people who have contacted me asking variations of this question.
Regular readers will know that when I was at university - which seems likes ages ago now - I was gifted a 1990 Brompton. I loved it and when my studies came to an end I tried to do the right thing and gifted it on to someone else. Before and after that I owned mountain bikes but I never really clicked with them in the same way I did the Brompton. Zoom forward to the start of this blog several years ago and I bought an Orange Brompton and have not looked back.
