I am not the only Brompton user who locks their bike up with a strong D lock and goes to the shops on Oxford Street in the West End. I saw this Brompton on Monday locked up on the bike racks that are by the side of John Lewis department store. I usually leave my Brompton fully opened so that I can just get on and ride, but I can see that folded takes up no space at all. My only worry with this is that another bike rider may just lock their bike on top of the Brompton and make it very difficult for you to get your bike out. Just like when you are blocked in with your car.
Nice green colour. Reminds me of deep sap green oil paint.
Last month I caught a Brompton owner locking his bike outside Cannon Street Station with one of those long but thin cable locks. I just went up to him and told him he was mad and the bike was too expensive to be left with this type of lock. He laughed and asked me if I was going to take it. I said No, I have one at home. I was parking my Trek bike at the time. The Brompton wasn’t there when I returned so I hope I scared him into taking it with him.
