FOLDING BICYCLE - HOW IT WORKSBased around a single frame and wheel size, there are four types of handlebar to choose from; combine these with the different saddle, gearing and component options to build your perfect Brompton folding bike.
The clever design means that the bike can easily be folded or unfolded in under 20 seconds. When folded the bike is locked together in a compact package, which can be carried or towed easily and conveniently stored almost anywhere. The chain and gears are in the centre of the folded package keeping them away from clothing and luggage.

The three handlebar types offer different ride positions for various styles of riding. The handlebar options mean that the small folding bike will give a superb, comfortable riding position.

The small wheels afford the bike great acceleration and manoeuvrability, ideal for stop-start city riding. The smaller wheel diameter also increases the strength and rigidity of the wheels. The suspension offered by the long seatpost and suspension block make the small folding bike comfortable to ride over rough surfaces and for longer distances.Why buy a Brompton?
