Brompton Bikes

The largest bike manufacturer in the UK was conceived in London to increase people’s independence and freedom. In 1975, Andrew Ritchie designed the Brompton folding bike in a flat in South Kensington and to this day the brand’s bicycles are still designed to empower their riders with additional independence and freedom – when you want to get around the city; think of Brompton bikes.

Brompton Bikes – High Quality Folding Bicycles Made In The United Kingdom

Hand brazed by a skilled craftsperson in their London facility, each bike is crafted to such a standard that every bike produced by them is incredibly tough and unique. Their bicycles are built to thrive travelling through a busy city such as London.

The brazers who build Brompton bicycles are trained for 18 months and each has a unique signature which they stamp on the parts of the bike that they have worked on. Additionally, adding to the unique attraction of the bicycle, the Brompton style bicycle has become one of the many icons of the city of London. With its unique profile, it is set apart from other bicycles. Indeed, some would argue that the brand is as a part of London as the double decker bus or the London Underground.

Brompton Bicycles – Choose The Bike That Best Meets Your Needs

There are numerous different Brompton bikes that you can choose from, including bicycles with different types of handlebars to provide cyclists with a more comfortable riding experience.

For example, with regards to the choice of handlebars that are available with bicycles manufactured by Brompton, you could opt for the M Type which is a classic shape. However, if you are a cyclist who prefers a more upright cycling experience, a fold-up bike with H Type handlebars would likely be better suited to your needs.

Brompton built bicycles are also available with two different styles of handlebars, S type for those searching for a sporty ride and P Type for those who need versatile handlebars that offers several different options with regards to grip positions.

How Are Folding Bicycles Different From Other Bikes?

When browsing through a range of folding bicycles, one of the most noticeable differences compared to ‘regular bicycles’ is the size of their wheels and the size of their frame. On a folding bicycle, both the wheels and frame are much smaller than regular bicycles. The small wheels can present some issues with regards to off-road cycling or cycling on uneven roads, however when used on cycle lanes in a city environment, they can be fantastic methods of transport.

Additionally, another advantage of fold-up bicycles is that you can fold them up and store them. If you’re commuting to work or using it whilst holidaying in a caravan, you can store the bicycle indoors. This means that you do not have to leave the bicycle unattended when you’re not using it.

Also, you can browse through a range of carry cases on our online store such as the O Bag or the Game Bag. So if you’re holidaying and using your bicycle to visit a new area, you could carry your folding bike with you, that way you don’t have to worry about getting lost and forgetting where you left your bicycle.

Who Are Folding Bikes Ideal For?

Whilst folding bikes manufactured by Brompton are a great choice for a wide range of people, especially those who live in busy cities such as London, they are ideal for commuters in these busy urban areas. Their fold-up design makes them the ideal choice for commuting. They enable people to cycle to work and upon reaching their location fold up their bike so it doesn’t take up much room in the workplace. Additionally, for those who travel to their place of work via train, they could cycle to the train station, fold up their bike whilst on the train, then unfold the bicycle and complete their journey to work on their bike.

However, the joys of cycling on a fold-up bicycle aren’t restricted to commuters who cycle to work. A folding bike is also a fantastic solution for those who have limited space available. For example, people who live in small flats. Additionally, their fold up design makes them ideal as items of transport for people who enjoy holidaying in a caravan or a canal barge as in those living spaces; space is often at a premium.
