Folding bikes can be a handy addition to your commute. If you're looking for one, know that each kind folds a little differently.

Bromptons are nice and compact, but how do you make this thing rideable?

Firstgrab the handlebars and swing them up and out of this clasp.

Swing them all the way up, and you'll find a little clamp to hold them up there. Make sure the clamp sits straight and tighten it down with the black handle.

Nextwe'll pull the seat up. The seat post holds the folded bike together, so you can't do much until it's extended. Open the clamp and pull up on the seat.

Take a moment to sight down the saddle nose, to make sure it's pointing straight forward. In my experience, it's super annoying to ride with the saddle nose even slightly askew.

Get a feel for about how high the saddle needs to be. It takes a lot of tweaking at first, but you start to learn what it looks like when it's pretty close.

Clamp it!

Now the fun parthang onto to saddle with one hand and the handlebars with the other hand and, leaning the bike slightly towards you, swing the front wheel towards you and then forward.

Clamp it! (Note that the previous step is easier when not trying to film it.)

Nextgrab the saddle with your left hand and pick up the bike's butt quickly. The rear wheel will swing back and snap into place. (Also easier with two free hands.)

Finallyif you've got a folding left pedal, unfold it now.

Voila! You're free to speed about the city at will. (Some people unfold the front and back wheels together in one swift heft, but I find that gets the chain tangled fairly frequently.)

Once you're ready to refold, push this lever to release the rear wheel, pick up the bike butt to swing it under, and reverse the whole process.
