"The New One"
Most deffo a coffee over keyboard moment there sonny, and I ain't done that in some while reading off here.
The Brommie shop in Long Acre (Lunjon) is a couple of doors away from one of my fave restaurants in Lunjon and I always pop in, I always take a look at the bikes and thier pretty colours. I quite like the shop, I ached for it to be open for months. So, I am informed, the current bike is the old bike I was aluding too...
Again the argument rests on the Luverz "it folds nice and unfolds nice and quick" So, so you see thats one of the very very few positive points they have, but that comes with it's limits namely a wobbly arse, squeeky brakes, shuddery headstock and flexable levers that are great pretenders of controlling mechanisms.
Hard to see past "shake rattle and roll" when you are in Luv I suppose.
I don't critise lightly. I do feel they've passed thier sell by date 8 years ago, trade only as a marketing segment to those with rose tinted eyes who endure, sorry enjoy being seen as some crowd pleaser.
To note: I've been using a foldie for 4 1/2 years, bought my first Brommie as the first step into under desk reassurance then sold it within 9mths for something more sturdy that rides better that looks better and is cheaper and waaaaaay more reliable.
But my logic clearly doesn't follow suit (cough) to those Luverz, my suit follows a different cut, modern, tailored, clean, efficient.
