It’s our professional opinion, with all things considered like foldability, rideability, portability, manoeuvrability, etc, that  no one does it better than Brompton -  Bromptons are the big favourite with commuters, extremely compact when folded, yet in 15 to 20 seconds transforms into a bike that you’ll be proud to ride, with excellent handling around town, or even a joy to ride on those longer trips, with a choice of single, two, three or the new wide range six speed versions that use the new Brompton/Sturmey BWR hub gear. In addition there are options of 12% reduced gearing for those particularly hilly regions.

 

Finely-engineered and elegant, the Brompton has a full-sized frame, made mainly of steel for strength and stiffness. It is designed to be practical and light enough to be genuinely portable; actual weight depends on model and configuration, but ranges from 9 -12½ kg (20 - 28lbs). Brompton weights are true weights; unlike most bike manufacturers, they include the weight of mudguards, pedals, etc. in their figures - if it’s on the bike as standard they include the weight.

 

The combination of a rigid frame and accurate alignment makes for efficient transmission of your energy and a lively, first-rate ride; countless owners use them on long journeys and for touring and a good number even prefer the ride of a Brompton to that of conventional bikes.

 

 The range of Bromptons includes very many possibilities, from four styles of handlebar,  lightweight Titanium rear swing arm and forks, Titanium seatposts and folding pedal axles, to the new wide range 6- speed system. This has without doubt broadened the appeal, and younger riders feel more at home with the sport range, and will love the satin colour finishes.

Brompton offer the B-Spoke ordering system for both Steel and Titanium models, which we are more than willing to operate for those that require it. If you would like to order a very specific Brompton that is just to your taste then please take a look at the The Brompton Brochure this is always a good starting point in order to get familiar with the options available. The downside of ordering from the factory and not one of many models that we have in stock could be the delivery times, which are currently around 6 weeks and vary according to the time of year and demand.

We stock a large variety of models with Specifications and colours of our own choice, in order that we can supply bikes for immediate delivery.

 

A key feature of the Brompton is the compactness and practicality of its fold. With a little practice, this is achieved without any difficulty in 10 - 20 seconds. The dimensions of the folded bike are: 585mm high x 545mm long x 270mm wide (22.2" x 21.5" x 10.6").

 

 

When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making it an extremely compact package. The folded package may be picked up without any risk that the bike will unfold, this is one of big plus points on a folding bike that you are likely to rush with onto a train.

 

There are no projections or loose parts with the folded package and, using the frame or the new saddle as a handle, it carries like a small suitcase, lightweight and easy to manage. The fold is designed to keep vulnerable parts, like cable-runs, out of harm's way and, by folding them in to the centre of the package, to keep the greasy chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. Small rollers allow the bike to be pushed into inaccessible corners. You also have the extra option of Eazy wheels, so the bike can be easily wheeled along when folded.

 

 

You can choose either to have your Brompton finished in one colour or in two, with the extremities and main frame contrasting. The Raw Lacquer option is a clear coating highlighting the braze detail and quality, this however is only available for the whole frame, not in combination.

 

 

On all Bromptons, steel is used for the main frame and handlebar stem. The steel gives rigidity to the vital link between handlebar and pedals, which is the key to good handling. On a standard Brompton, the extremities are also made of steel, but on a Brompton with a superlight frame, the rear triangle and front forks are made of titanium the finish on these parts is therefore natural titanium , while an alloy headset and titanium seat pillar, mudguard stays, seat pillar and folding pedal-axle save more weight.(In line with the minimalist approach, no pump is fitted on the superlight models). Two colours are considered standard, and as such do not attract a surcharge; all other colour options, except Raw Lacquer (which has a larger surcharge including extremities and main frame), have an additional £30.00 surcharge for the extremities and again £30.00 for the main frame.

 

 

Finally we invite you to come and take a test ride on a Brompton so that you can see for yourself just how versatile these British made folding bikes really are.   If you wish to order a Brompton bike from our stock range, or place an order for a Custom Brompton, please be sure to choose from one of our free gift options as detailed below.

All Folding Bikes are thoroughly prepared and checked in the workshop (unless we state otherwise on Sale models) in order to validate the warranties, this involves a thorough setup and adjustment of spokes, bearings, brakes, gears (stops and cable adjustment). The chainset and crank, handlebars and all nuts and bolts are checked for tightness and the pedals fitted. Finally the tyre pressures are set and the folding joints and all quick releases are lubricated and adjusted. After a brief test ride (mainly indoor) they are then carefully packed back into the original boxes using appropriate packaging, this means that the bikes when received and unfolded are ‘ready to ride’ .  All 26” wheel Dahon bikes arrive in the UK in boxes with the frame unfolded but the bike partially dismantled. We have taken the decision that in order to properly achieve our highest aim and that of the responsible manufacturers with whom we liase, that we therefore, properly prepare then fold the completed bike with only the handlebar removed, it is therefore necessary for us to repackage the bike accordingly on account of it’s larger size when assembled.
