Are Small Wheels Really That Funny?
I’ve been riding the Brompton around work quite a lot - it’s just perfect for zipping between appointments in an area that’s just four miles by six.
It seems to have a strange result on younger chaps though. A young chap alone - nothing. Silence.
But in groups, one of them will burst out in “oh-look-at-me-laughing-at-that” laughter. I think he’s probably the one who feels his masculinity threatened by those small, 16″ wheels (that say I have no need to compensate for anything), and in an effort to divert his chums attention away from his own inadequately proportioned *ahem* wheels & head tube, will start to laugh.
