We are excited to introduce you to the new CHPT 3 edition Brompton. This stylish foldable bike has been created in collaboration with David Millar, one of Britain’s most successful cyclists. He is an urban cyclist convert himself. When David first met with Brompton 2 years ago he rarely used his bike to transport him around the city. But, that all changed when he was introduced to his first Brompton bike, and he loved it so much that he went on to ride in the Brompton World Championship Final back in 2015.
This special edition bike that he has created reflects his unique style. It comes in a quirky sparkle grey and red fire colourway, with a custom red/black Brooks Cambium C17 saddle and bold Red Ergon GA2 grips. David has also made the CHPT 3 edition super quick. By removing the mudguards and rack it is lightweight and an S type handlebar puts you in a sporty ride position for a quicker commute. With a 6-speed gear set it is more than capable of tackling the longer and more challenging journey.
Like all Brompton’s this special edition is handmade in London with great care. It easily folds down in seconds into a small package only slightly larger than its wheels that is super easy to carry around, which makes it welcome on most public transport, even during busy peak times. Its clever folding design keeps mucky parts neatly inside and out of the way of your clothing.
With this new stylish Brompton you are guaranteed to stand out in any city!

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.
