On Thursday I caught by chance the BBC Radio 4 business programme The Bottom Line. This is a programme of interviews of a small group of people in finance or business about their personal business practices. I normally switch off but this week one of the interviewees was Will Butler Adams managing director of Brompton.
At the beginning of the programme in his introduction Will Butler Adams said that Brompton are currently developing an electric propelled bike! He didn’t give details because this wasn’t the point of the programme but he did describe how the power would be linked to the pedals.
If you want to hear the interview here is the link to this weeks programme. It is available on BBCiPlayer. I can’t promise how long the link will last. The BBC keeps programmes for at least a week and sometimes longer.
I have looked on the Brompton website and there is no mention of the interview or this development.
Is this the new Big Idea?
