My pal Eddie went with me to check out a “too good to be true” deal on a used Brompton the other night. Everything checked out, so I’m the proud owner of a 1998 (?) folder. As far as I can tell it’s the “R3” model (a three-speed with a rack). The seat is awful, but I’ll probably upgrade to a Brooks soon. I’ve taken it on the subway a couple of times and ridden it across the Brooklyn Bridge. So far so good.
