Brompton has been making folding bikes for many years now, everyone folds down into a small package, little larger than the wheels, in around 10 to 20 seconds. All the componentry has been designed to suit Brompton's unique fold, keeping lights, cables etc out of harm's way and, by folding them in, keeping the chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. Once folded the bike has no projections or loose parts, and will carry like a small suitcase.


Excellent frame rigidity ensures that the cyclist's efforts are efficiently converted into a responsive, quick ride, while a full-sized wheel base delivers stability at speed. All of this adds up to a quality ride. This M3L has the M shaped handlebars that have been used on Brompton's from the beginning, they offer a more upright riding position, and excellent control. The M type is an all-rounder in the Brompton range. As happy in the city as it is on a country lane, and it offers plenty of room up front for luggage. It is also equipped with the 3 Speed (BSR - Brompton Standard Range) gears. The BSR is an updated version of the classic Sturmey Archer hub in an aluminium alloy shell, with three well-spaced gears. They are fully enclosed for reliability and changing gear couldn't be simpler. Then to top it all off this model comes an extended seat post and mudguards as standard. An essential piece of kit for the everyday user.

The first Brompton bike was built in 1975 from the South Kensington bedroom of designer Andrew Ritchie.

 

His initial prototypes were crude, but through a relentless refining process Ritchie hit upon a cycle that would go on to become the gold standard of folding bikes.

 

In recent years, the company has seen rapid expansion worldwide, and now has stores in cities including London, Amsterdam, Beijing, Tokyo and Barcelona.

 

But not content to rest on their laurels, Brompton has a large team of in-house designers and engineers who are constantly developing new accessories and improving upon the design of the bike itself.  

 

Every Brompton is handmade in their London factory by skilled craftsman who have undergone an intensive 18-month training program, and who each have a unique signature which they stamp on the parts of the bike they work on.

 

This culture of accountability is indicative of Brompton’s commitment to quality, and helps to ensure that every one of their bikes is built to the highest standard.
