Small Folding Bikes, How Does a Folding or Collapsible Bicycle Work | Brompton Bikes

The Fold

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 center of the folded package, keeping them away from clothing and luggage.

The four 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. 

Each handlebar holds a different appeal. Click on the handlebars to see the riding position.

The Ride

The small wheels afford the bike great acceleration and maneuverability, 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?

Luggage Options

The Brompton luggage system allows the small folding bike to fit into your daily life. Day-to-day carrying needs which might need some thought become easy as the luggage system offers carrying solutions for everyone. The different styles and sizes of bags available mean there is a bag for any situation.

Steering and stability are unaffected by the front luggage system, as the bag does not attach to the handlebar.
