Throwing Away My Bicycle Was The Best Decision I Ever Made!
Aaron Tsuru

Yes, that mirrors my experience in London too, I replaced my fixed for a six gear Brompton and have gown to love it, and as you say others do too. If the weather goes bad I just fold it and stick it in the back of an Uber finishing my journey warm and dry, no need to go spartan anymore if I don’t want to. You didn’t mention the amazing range of bags you can clip to the front of the Brompton that you can reach into, rucksacks no longer needed.
