The Brompton meets a rival

The Brompton and I made another trip to Chingford this afternoon. On the third part of the journey (train from Liverpool Street to Ponders End) we were joined by another folding bike in the carriage. The bike was made by The Saxon Bike Company and is called the 'Fold it' bike. On the internet it states the retail price as £199.99. I couldn’t find any details about the bike company on the internet. It looks sturdy but I admit that I would not trust a bike that cheap and without information about where and how it was made.

Looks very similar to the pashley brilliant micro folding bike. These where re badged as pashley but made in the far east i think.

I didn't know Pashley had entered the folding bike market. I will go and look it up.

Think pashley stopped selling them a couple of years ago.

hi, did you take the picture inside the train ?

Cycling in Heels said...

Yes I did. Some train carriages have open space for prams, wheelchairs and bikes.

thats great - unfortunatly - here we are not alowed to get on board the train with an open bike.
the fact is that other than folding bikes - no bikes are alowed .
i hope progress will come to us soon.
