    Oh dear, going round sharp bends with possible loose grit awaiting VERY hard tyres... ready to slide you off your Brompton....

    Fiar play, I'll have to save the link when someone suggests that some of the things I do to Bromptons indicates a lack of a sense of perspective....

    Hello Chis, I don't really understand your message wording. Years ago my eldest daughter came off her cycle due to road grit on a bend. When on my cycle or my motorcycle I take care on bends on country lanes! I see from the video that the bend shot was set up for the film so my statement was pointless. The video was good, but was the inflatable boats part a extra adventure??? As there was a inter island ferry in the back ground in one film clip??!

    There is a very good inter island ferry service but they chose to do the whole thing under their own steam so to speak so you did see a ferry in the background. Small wheels and hard tyres can be a bit skittish but you soon get used to it.

    I was responding to the original link.... I do odd things on (actually mostly to) Bromptons, their adventure to the top of Shetland is more bonkers than me fitting an 80T chainring to one or turning another into a full-Campagnolo drop-bar homage to the Bianchi Specialissima though...

    Surprises me that it's possible to paddle between the Shetland islands in those small inflatables.

    Rather than mad, those two guys clearly knew what they were doing.
