Brompton Folding Bikes, Arriving Soon

ML3 Timeless classic

This particular model features Sturmey Archer's reliable 3-speed hub as well as Brompton tyres, a telescopic seatpost, a C Bag, battery lights and a Brooks B17 saddle.

The distinctive U-shape of the M Type's handlebars has been used on the Brompton since the outset: it gives a fairly upright ride with excellent control. The M Type is the all-rounder in our range and remains the most popular Brompton, as much at home in the city as on a country lane, and with plenty of room for luggage at the front.

This particular model comes with Schwalbe Marathon tyres, a telescopic seatpost, a T Bag, Rack Sack, Shimano hub dynamo lighting and Eazy Wheels.

The multiple positions afforded by the P Type's handlebars are designed with the touring cyclist in mind, especially when paired with 6 gears and a rack. Although the handlebars are a little heavier than the M Type's, the lower grips, angled for comfort on longer stretches of road, allow the rider to get down out of the wind and deliver real power to the pedals; the upper grips provide a welcome contrast after a long stretch of riding and also give great control for manoeuvring in traffic.

This model, the S1E-X, is our lightest bike. It is stripped down but spec’d up with Kojak tyres and Superlight components.

For many, the S Type is the prettiest Brompton, and it certainly is the lightest. The grips, at about 935mm from the ground, are appreciably lower than on the M type, and 50mm further forward, giving a sporty riding position which complements the positive feel of these bikes.

This model features titanium and comes with Brompton tyres, a telescopic seatpost, an O Bag, SON hub dynamo lighting, Eazy Wheels and a Brooks B17S saddle.

The H Type was a new addition to the range for 2012. Providing a markedly more upright riding position (it has the highest grip height of the four options at 1072mm), the H Type is for those who like to travel with unhurried style, taking in the journey along the way.

This particular model features titanium, uses Brompton's derailleur system to turn a single-speed into a nimble 2-speed bike and comes with Brompton tyres, a front carrier block and reflectors.

For many, the S Type is the prettiest Brompton, and it certainly is the lightest. The grips, at about 935mm from the ground, are appreciably lower than on the M type, and 50mm further forward, giving a sporty riding position which complements the positive feel of these bikes.

Some bike shop news to share – THE BRITISH ARE COMING! What?  Yes with folding bikes, shipped directly to us, for you.  Why folding?  Because it’s the perfect addition to our tiny garage, and we think once you ride one, you’ll realize that it's the perfect addition to your life too.

Hand made and hard to find, every Bromtpon is custom made to order.

We’re adding a new section to our website where you can learn all about Brompton and build your own custom bike and even order online.

I would say more, but trust me the bike speaks for itself.  We'll have our first shipment by March 15th.

Ride on! (or better yet, Fold on!)
