A Brompton is the perfect bicycle for the city, touring, traveling, and well...just about anything! It folds down to a portable, practical size so can be taken on other forms of public and private transport. It can also be taken inside homes, offices, bars so it is a lot less likely to be stolen.
Its ride position and agility are more than a match for conventional bicycles. Small wheels mean fast acceleration from red lights and increased maneuverability through busy streets.
It is tough and can take everything the city throws at it, every day. A steel frame, efficient and puncture resistant tires, handmade with high build quality and a design that has been refined over 25 years means Brompton bikes provide years of regular city use and beyond. They may not look tough, but never judge a book by its cover, this bike can be pushed to high limits and will last for years to come. Bromptons also have an array of front luggage that can all be applied to the same front carrier block, making the Brompton one of the best folding bikes to load up with cargo. We offer the largest stock in the US of these high quality folding bikes.
This bike has a regular Brompton H handlebar and stem. It gives you the most upright and comfortable position for those long cruising rides, or for the taller folks, it can be a medium upright position that still provides all the comfort you need.
The L version Brompton is the most popular, and offers a front and rear mudguard set that helps keep you and your Brompton fresh and clean. The rear mudguard comes with a roller wheel to help support and roll the bike while its folded, giving it some added functionality while protecting your back from any spray. Smaller wheels tend to spray water higher, so the front mudguard has a large flap to prevent any spray on your legs as well.
The three speed Brompton is a commuter favorite, offering a nice gear range and the simplicity of the low maintenance internal hub. You get 42 gear inches on the low end and 85 on the high end, giving you gears for steep hills, cruising, and speed. The single speed drive train combined with the Sturmey Archer internal hub offers you smooth shifting with almost no moving parts. Simple, clean, and practical.

I would suggest going to the bike shop and test riding the different handle bar styles to see which one you like the best. I'm 5 10 and the M style put too much pressure on my hands/wrists. And it was a challenge to keep my head up. After all, one of the joys of riding around in NYC is seeing what is around you. The H worked best for me. I love my bike. The Brompton is so well designed and the components are top of the line. If you are thinking about buying one, take a test drive.
