  1. I just stumbled across your blog. If you are the only Brompton rider in Syracuse, I may be the only one in Rochester. Mine is the same racing green as yours but is an electric version, a concession to my age (75) and a lifetime of avoiding sports and exercise at all costs. Actually I bought it to keep up with my athletic wife who leaves me in the dust of her 12-speed Cannondale (Note any more :) )
