Hey, it's English. What more is there to say? The Brompton is the iconic folding bike featuring 16" wheels, compact fold, and English properness. It's the perfect companion for the commuter, student, pilot, or big/little city/town professional. Hand-made in England of hand-brazed chrome-moly steel.
I keep a Brompton in my van at all times for riding when the spirit calls me, or when the van breaks down. While not the lightest of folding bikes (see our amazing Bike Fridays), it does possess an amazing ride quality that defies it's small size. Riding is believing. I always have at least one demo Brompton in the shop.
Please Note: I will not sell to resellers. Please read and understand my shipping policy which applies to all products I sell: I do not ship internationally. I do not ship to logistics freight forwarding centers.

How do I know which model my Brompton is?
Standard Brompton models come with a standard three-digit code, which will tell you the handlebar type, the gearing, and whether or not the bike has mudguards and a rack. An example would be an S2L: S Type handlebars, two gears and mudguards.
Every Model name follows the pattern.
Letter|Number|Letter eg: S3L
The first letter shows the type of handlebar the bike has. This affects your riding position.
There is a choice of three handlebar types: M, S, and H. Using the How it works section of the website, you should be able to identify which handlebar type appears on your bike.
The number in the sequence refers to how many gears the bike has. 1, 2, 3 or 6 speed
Details about the gearing options are available in the How it works section; you should be able to tell how many gears you have by taking a look at the gear triggers (both of which are shown and explained on the gearing page).
The final letter at the end of the model code can either be E, L or R. If your bike has no mudguards it is an E version, if it has mudguards then it is an L version, and bikes with racks d mudguards are R versions.
Adding the suffix X indicates if the bike is a Superlight model.
