A sunny afternoon after work I took PB’s Brompton (called by me ‘Brompty’) round the block, as I am seriously considering getting a Brompton I can call my own ; )
So light and nippy in comparison to Pashley, made me think a Brompton would be the perfect companion to Vita!
I will need to get used to the responsiveness of the handlebar… it’s so ‘loose’ a light touch and it turns! Equally I was pleansantly surprised by how solid it felt giving me a comfy, smooth ride!
Not relevant to the Brompton I looooved the comfy Brooks saddle… after 6 years of daily riding by PB… I have a long way to go with mine on Vita. Although I have gone through the sore bum period now, so that can’t be too bad!
Brompton‘s popularity has grown exponentially in the last few years, and it’s easy to see why! The design is very appealing and elegant, folding is quick and beautifully compact, I have in the past referred it to as origami folding!
They are dear brand new, no doubt, but if PB’s can be testament to the longevity of Brompton, the money spent will be well worthwhile!
Now… all I’ve got left to do is to start and save (!)

My dad’s is coming to visit for few days so I’ll be off the interwebz fora while! Have fun this week end as it’s meant to be sunny and breezy!! Perfect weather to take your bike out and enjoy the scenery!
