This long awaited tool kit from Brompton finally hit the streets in November 2012.
Every Brompton should have one of these! (In our opinion)
There were then periods of unavailability due to demand outstripping supply, then as the tyre levers were redesigned in metal (previously they were a touch plastic / resin compound) for extra strength To meet Bromptons string end quality requirements.
Finally they are again available - they will not be supplied with the cardboard packaging as this is in short supply. (Waiting on printers)
Brompton make one of the world's most iconic folding bicycles. Originally designed in 1977, it has been continuously refined ever since. However there has never been a dedicated toolkit for the bike.
That's now changed: this new toolkit fits discretely within the front frame tube such that, when the bike is in use, the toolkit is fully enclosed within the frame.
The kit includes all the tools necessary for most road-side repairs in a compact, lightweight, discreet pack:
Perhaps the most innovative features of the kit are the space-saving double-ended driver bits and the unique tyre levers (unique as the incorporate spanners within the tyre lever).
These levers make removing tyres substantially easier - compared to using your hands alone and also incorporate 10 and 12mm spanners (patent-pending). Remember: tyre levers should be used as an aid when removing tyres - but not when fitting, for tyre installation you need technique, not brute force - to avoid damaging the tyre or inner tube.
