“You see a lot of Bromptons in Belgium. I think it is the most common bike. I have had this two and a half years now. I always had a regular bike before but then I started living outside Brussels and i had to commute with the train. Now I live back in Brussels because the commute was too big. It was a solid hour. I had kids and they still came to school here in Brussels and it was really hard.  It was really terrible and we had to go all the way around in the car and I always took my bike and then did the rest by bit and leave the car. And my wife took the car back. It was like a big hour in traffic.”
