Designed for streetwise urban cyclists and commuters, the Brompton M6LX Titanium 2017 with special edition Brooks saddle features a frame specially designed with lightweight titanium rear frame, front fork and folding pedal bolt, helping to cut down on weight for a faster ride.
Perfect for your commute, the Brompton’s frame and handlebars fold down quickly in under 20 seconds, unfolding just as easily. Once folded, the bike is compact and easy to carry, with the chain and gears kept safely inside the design and away from clothing and luggage.
Featuring a new M-type handlebar in a classic shape to promote good all round positioning, this Brompton model is equipped with 6-speed gears (ideal for touring and challenging inclines) and new ergonomic underbar shifters.

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.
