An Interview with the Inventor of Brompton Bike

The Observer recently interviewed Andrew Ritchie, the man who invented the Brompton portable folding bike. In a previous article, we highlighted the strengths of this bicycle, giving it high marks for its compactness and overall performance. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

...Ritchie, 58, is more than just another cyclist. He is a self-confessed obsessive, someone who has devoted the past 30 years of his life to building the best portable bicycle in the world, a machine that is fun and efficient to ride but can be quickly folded into a package smaller than an average suitcase, carried up and down stairs, tucked behind a train seat or secreted under a desk.
