Nor so much a review as a list of things you can get a folded Brompton in on a long trip out.

Could & should have spoken far more about its surprisingly good ability as a thing to be ridden IMO.

It's the only bike I'd be happy to cart all the way across France on a train, and then ride it for a week. With luggage.

She doesn't want to appear like a middle class Guardianista, but feels that review gives enough information on which to base a £1000 purchasing decision?

My decision to buy my Brommie was based on even less in an 'The Independent 50 Best Bikes' supplement. Mind you they were half the price then.

If it says it fits in the boot, train, rack and can get to the shops/office than that's it for a folder. Only later did some of us discover we had accidentally bought an extra road bike that can go places no other bike would go

". But they barely depreciate and, crucially, they are better than the rest"

Rest of the article were wasted words

In the letters page this week, someone was moaning that they reviewed a £955 bike.
This week it was a £25 000 car...
