This has reminded me that I need to get my and the wife’s bikes up to snuff. Need a freewheel for my single speed.
My wife and I have British Brompton folding bikes and we love them. They fold down so small you can bring them into restaurants and tuck them under the dining table! You can also fold them halfway and the push them like a shopping cart when grocery shopping! They’re perfect for Santa Monica and don’t feel like you’re riding a compromised bike. Here’s mine:
Here’s a quick gif of how they fold:
And a quick trailer with David Millar riding one in the city:
They’re not the kind of bike you’d use for offroading, but for city commuting they’re great.
