Can you take them on planes as hand luggage? My long haul flights are usually in business (ooh, get 'im) so plenty of luggage allowance but not sure if it would be allowedWhy not see if you can take it with you on your next Far East trip and (assuming you have the spare time), see how you and it get on together.
Surely any bike can do that?
Isn't the Brompton principle that when folded it is small enough to be classed as luggage and taken on busses or trams, and can be folded and taken into the office when arriving at work? You don't need that for a ride to the pub or shops....
But I'm guessing the mechs get snowed up pretty quick being so low down. You're braver than me though. I remember doing my paper round on my BMX in my youth, and getting a tip from a guy I wasn't even delivering two at the top of a little hill because "he admired my pluck". The short times I was actually riding the bike that day, there was enough snow for a soft landing I guessed.
Absolutely. I do not own a lock. Bike fits in trolley at supermarket. Fill the other half of trolley with shopping, then that'll fit in the T-Bag. Can always take in with me at coffee/beer/food stop. Less grams to carry :-)When you get to the shops or pub, you take it in with you rather than lock it up outside.
