Brompton

1 Item in stock

£8.00

The Brompton Saddle Height Insert was a new addition to 2015 model Brompton folding bikes, but like so much in the Brompton design world is backwards compatible

We think this is one of the best enhancements to the Brompton - along with the rear frame clip. If you are sharing a Brompton with multiple riders, it's not quite so useful.

It's purpose it to help you set your preferred saddle height (like having a memory seat function in your car - but low-tech!), so you have to spend less time in pre-ride adjustment when unfolding the bike. The insert is fitted as standard to all new (2015 onwards) Bromptons.

The saddle height insert is supplied free with all new Brompton bicycles - so an alternative to this upgrade would be to invest in a new Brompton bike :-)

Designed in-house at Brompton and patented, the saddle height insert is designed to make your Brompton riding life just that little bit easier.

Fitting instructions for the height insert sleeve can be found on the download tab and come with it too

Tools required for installation:
5mm hex / allen key
Marker pen / tipex / masking tape
Scissors 

There is also an instructional video on Youtube from Brompton - here.

Review Title: Effective but really??

Usual fantastic service from Brilliant Bikes. The Saddle Height insert is easy to install, and works very well, allowing me to get riding much quicker and with less chance of a comedy bike fit. I've adjusted it (cut more off = higher) since, as I was conservative in my setting - you can't stick it back on!

My only gripe is the usual ridiculous Brompton price - is it the cardboard tube? Otherwise, it's a piece of plastic...

    Review Title: Essential Retro Fit

    It is often said that the simple things are the best - well, this proves it. If you are fed up of marking the seat post and/or setting the wrong seat height, then this is for you.
    Just buy it, fit it and go, and go, and go .....
    Only downside is that the price is a bit high for what is essentially a plastic tube, but hey, the benefits far outweigh this minor niggle.

            Review Title: Excellent bit of kit

            This is really easy to fit and takes the guesswork out of setting the saddle height. If you have a Brompton you absolutely must get this, I cannot recommend highly enough

                Review Title: Sitting comfortably

                Someone must have been listening to me complain about my regular dismounting and mounting following unfolding my Brompton. If you are a regular cyclist you get used to your seat being at the right height, within about a 5mm tolerance. If you are unfolding your bike several times in a journey it does become annoying when you set off and then realise it's not quite right. Anyway, this 'insert' from Brompton solves this problem so I should be able to look forward to shaving not only my legs but a few seconds off my journey times.

                    Review Title: Handy addition

                    I saw this by chance and as it was so cheap decided to purchase one. I was not disappointed as I no longer need to think about how far to pull the seat up. This is such a simple design and you'll wonder how you survived so long without it. Fitted within 15 minutes, with detailed instructions included, it really is useful. The only problem that I could foresee is if your Brompton is used by someone, other than you, with longer legs! Not a problem for me as I am the lone rider.
