Just regear it for hillage. Even fully loaded with touring gear I’ve ridden mine over some pretty lumpy ground.Given the circumstances of me receiving it, selling isn't an option
I'll hang onto it. Never know it may be useful on a holiday
I met a group of Brompton riders in Holmfirth doing an ultra-hilly 100 mile Peak District ride so it is doable. But I'm bad enough on hills to happily accept all the advantages a standard road bike gives me. Thinking about it, it'll stay in the garage for now. If we go to the seaside for the weekend it can come with us. I always drive the family mad on these hols so going off for a couple of hours is probably good for everyoneYou can join the ranks of the lunatics who tour on them, race them, ride ridiculous distances on them, do their shopping on them, ride to the station, tie streaming behind in the wind, jacket in full on superman pose and anything else you can think of they were probably never meant to do. Not forgetting the hundreds of bling mods, copper plating, fancy carry handles, modded gearing.
Oh you've entered a brave new world outside the comfort zone of decathlon. Given the circumstances of your ownership it deserves it all.
