No faff, no fuss and not a lot to go wrong. All you have to do is concentrate on keeping those legs turning, though you may struggle on steep hills.
Using Brompton's unique derailleur system for near perfect chain-alignment, a second gear makes for easy cruising.
A robust, fully enclosed gear-hub with three well-spaced gears. Perfect for middle to long distance commutes in mildly hilly areas.
Choose from over dozen colours including Lime Green, Berry Crush and British Racing Green.
There are two frame materials to choose from.
Standard issue. Steel is used on all Brompton's for the main frame and handlebars - ensuring maximum rigidity and strength - and on all-steel models for the rear triangle and front fork too.
The saddle height will impact both comfort and performance. Make sure you select the right height for your measurements.
Brompton's lightest and shortest seatpost. Built for someone with an inside leg of 33''/84cm and under.
For an inside leg of 33 - 35''/84 - 89cm. The added length means that the saddle protrudes an extra 60mm when folded.
Suspension is important on a folding bike as the small wheels don't absorb shock as well as full-sized ones. Bromptons use a polyurethane block between the main and rear frame, which eats up lumps and bumps on the road without giving an overly bouncy ride.
Catering for riders of up to 180lbs, Brompton's standard suspension block gives a smooth and comfortable ride.
