eBrompton confirmed

Today's post from Brompton confirms what some of us were hoping for - an eBrompton will be coming in 2012! Electric assist - yes, if you are young and fit you may sneer, but for me, I had a severe back problem in mid-2010, which has not disappeared, and I've only been able to ride a Nano Brompton since, so this is important news for me, and I suspect quite a lot of others too. I can't wait to try one, but in the meantime I will be going to local Origami rides (changing platforms for longer journeys is a problem even with a Brompton!) with the Nano.
