Orac - why not go for an e-bike instead?
I’ll repeat my opening post.

I live on the top floor of an old converted building with a two person lift. The only way you’d get a bike in is b6 standing on end - and I don’t have room for one in my apartment anyway.

There is a bike rack outside but, this being Brighton*, locks are cut off and they vanish quickly if worth anything. It is covered b6 our CCTV and, when asked by the police, I check it with them. Average theft takes about 30 seconds. But as they admit they don’t really pursue the cases.

Looked at fold up electric bikes but they average twice To three times the size folded weight and twice to three times the price.

BN2 - theft rate 987% of average for England and Wales.
