Brompton

The best folding bike you can buy, and its made right here in London. It is unbeatable for the speed of folding, the folded size and the quality of the ride. It has a complete spares back up and a huge range of luggage and other accessories.

Comfortable and stable to ride, it folds in seconds and fits into tiny spaces on trains, planes, buses or under your desk. The build quality is outstanding and all the spare parts are easily available, most of them we keep in the shop. 

They also have a fantastic luggage carrying system and a range of accessories to help you conveniently transport and store your bike. If it is your Brompton is your only bike it will give you years of good service. If you keep it as a second bike it will tuck tidily away until you need it and then be ready to go in seconds, anywhere in the world, door to door.

You can specify a Brompton however you like from within their great range of options. The first decision is on the handlebars, which determines the riding position and riding style of the bike. You can then choose any gearing, seating or colour combination you want, raise or lower the gears and choose from a range of bolt on extras. So go on - enjoy yourself - and get yourself a unique bike and a design classic all in one.

Six speed +£175.00

The six speed uses the special 3 speed Brompton Wide Range Hub [BWR], together with Brompton's 2 speed derailleur system. This gives an evenly-stepped gear range (302%) that is comparable to the leading 8-speed hubs; but uses only a single epicyclic gear train (instead of three), thereby maximising efficiency. At 0.94kg, it weighs almost half as much as other hub gears. Optional 12 percent gearing reduction. (+145 gms) Optional 7% or 18% reduction.

Gearing Reduction

12% reduction

On 3 or 6 speed bikes you can reduce the gearing by 12 percent. If you have to do the odd hill, get it!

18% reduction

Spin to win and save those knees! Ideal if you want to take it easy or if you know how to spin the pedals efficiently. Not available on the 6 speed as it already has the larger rear sprocket.

8% increase

For mashers! Only for 3 or 6 speed models.

7% reduction

Are you a pusher or a pedaller? Do you live in a hilly area? In our experience most people are happy with the standard ratios, but if you want lower gears choose one of these options. For 1 or 2 speed bikes only.
