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 Bromptons unique fold, keeping lights, cables etc out of harmâ€™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 S3L has the S spec handlebars that offer a sporty ride position and a rigid, lightweight, positive feel. The pay-off is less room for front luggage, but Brompton didn't conceive it as a touring bike.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 couldnâ€™t be simpler. Then to top it all off this model comes with mudguards as standard. An essential peace of kit for the everyday user.
