The amazing Brompton folding bike

I’m starting a series of posts in a cycling subcategory entitled “Brompton Adventures” about a bike I recently bought : my amazing Brompton folding bike (and details will follow about the specific bike I bought).  I absolutely love this quintessentially british slightly eccentric bike.  As an introduction see below the video of the inventor of the bike, Andrew Ritchie, demonstrate how the bike folds and unfolds.  It really is as simple as shown in the video.
