    In my area you don't have the option of being very far from your Brompton. Certainly no chance of a rack for the bike and a seat for the rider.
    The whole original story sounds fishy, who goes to the trouble of nicking a Brompton then abandons it?

    D lock through the back wheel = stress free train journey
  3. An opportunist "amateur", who sees a bike he can take while the owner is distracted. He finds it's hot, being written up in the local press, and realises his friends will be suspicious if he rides it, and if he puts it on gumtree, a thousand junior detectives will be ringing the police to let them know.

    I would have no idea how to dispose of such a bike, except abandoning it.
  4. Maybe change that to "realises his friends will point and laugh at him if he rides it"
    TinyMyNewt, theclaud and Adrian like this.
