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 R version
includes a set of front and rear mudguards, but in addition has a rear rack. This not only allows you to carry cargo on the back of your bike, but it makes rolling the bike in its "cart mode" as easy as pushing a shopping cart at the super market. This is a great option for those who want to roll their bikes, or for bike packing for that adventure ride! The six speed
is the "do everything" gear option for Brompton. With gears ranging from 33 to 100 gear inches, this bike comes packed with gears for whatever the road throws at you. The gear setup is most popular for travelers, and those who ride in hillier areas. The 6 speed is the clear cut favorite among Brompton users for its versatility.
