    Inspired by the mundane news thread and welcoming @Hill Wimp into to fold (IGMC) does your folder have a name?

    I call all my folders Keith in honour of Keith Peat. I like to think he'd be livid that not only he has a pointless mode of transport named in his honour but funny looking ones too.

    Sad but it amuses me.

    Collected today. I have spent the evening folding and unfolding so as not to look a complete fool at the station.

    First outing on the mean streets of London tomorrow.

    I've named my black and white Brompton 'Domino' for obvious reasons.*

    *None of which involve Pizza.

    My Brompton is called Henrietta. Her full name is Henrietta Brompton, who lives in the corner.
  9. Mostly refer to my brompton as the clown bike when describing it to none cyclists. Naturally I can fold/unfold the brompton faster than Houdini's octopus when I don't have an audience - unfortunately the bloody thing morphes into a metalic gordian knot as I fight with it in public.:banghead:

    I don't name my bikes. I have the purple bike, the blue Ribble, the black Ribble, the Brompton and so on.

    My Dahon is Chutney. Previous owner gave it the name, and I've kept it as it suits (the colour, according to Dahon, is Mango). Little scamp...
