Brompton folding bike Type L/TThe L and T Type Brompton's share many of the same design features, but let you customize your bike with your choice of accesories. Both models have Brompton specific parts, like the brakes and alumnium chainrings, and both come standard with the folding pedal and front and rear fenders. The L and T models are avilable with 3 or 6 speed internal hubs, and many custom color choices.Of the two models L and T, the L-type is the simpler and lighter. Although it lacks a rear carrier, the optional front luggage system can take care of most day-to-day needs. And for riding after dark, Brompton battery lights can be fitted without affecting folding.The T-Type Brompton includes the rear carrier rack with built in bungee cords, and a very efficient Brompton dynamo powered headlight and tailight. You'll always be ready for night rides, and don't have too worry about batteries. The rack and lighting kit add a few pounds to the weight of the bike, but have no effect on how easy it is to fold. If you plan on making a Brompton your everyday ride and travelling companion, we'd reccomend an L or T type.
