1/3: “I have a Brompton. An old one. It is ten years old now. I bought it second-hand from my brother who was one of the first with a Brompton in Brussels. He never had a driver’s licenses until his wife got pregnant, then he got his license to get her to the hospital. He still has a bike, though. But I have infected others. Once you see this, and once you get used to the Brompton, I have infected about ten people at my job, so now everybody has a Brompton. You have to see our offices. I work as a theatre technician and do lights and build sets. Every day there are five or six Brompton’s in different colours and measurements. Once I had a big bike and I gave it away because I do everything with this. It is very practical. I am a very practical guy. If it works, I am happy.”
