      Hot Pink, Papyrus White, Flame Lacquer and Purple Metallic were new for the 2019 model range

      3/ Handlebar type

      The Brompton comes with a choice of four handlebar types:
      M-type - this is the traditional Brompton style handlebar (it was re-modelled in 2017 to have a lower rise for improved stiffness - though a slightly increased stem height helps the overall height the same).
      S-type - this is a straight handlebar similar to that found on a mountain bike, to give a more sporty riding position.
      P-type - a multi-position style handlebars, especially useful for touring where you can benefit from taking different riding positions during long days in the saddle. H-type - this is the same shape as the M-type bar, but in conjunction with a longer stem gives a higher riding position - designed for the taller rider or those used to the European (Dutch / Swedish) riding position

      4/ Gears

      The Brompton comes with a choice of one, two, three or six gears.
      The two and six speed bikes use a Brompton specific derailleur 
      Threes and six speed bikes use a 3 speed hub gear. The six speed bike combines the derailleur and a wide ratio hub gear to give a total of six

      5/ Front luggage

      All Brompton come with lugs on the front ready for fitting a front carrier block. Brompton luggage is designed to easily click on and off of the front carrier block and comes in a wide variety of sizes and colours to suit your needs

      6/ Mudguards

      The bike comes with 3 options:
      a/ No mudguards
      b/ Mudguards only
      c/ Mudguards and rack
      The mudguards provide very good protection from water on the road

      7/ Roller wheels

      Roller wheels help the bike sit well and roll when folded. Larger roller wheel options are available

      8/ Tyres

      Bromptons come from the factory with a  choice of tyres:
      Brompton Schwalbe Marathon Racer 16 x 1 1/3 - new for 2018
      Schwalbe Marathon
      Schwalbe Kojak - a lightweight racing tyre

      9/ Saddle

      The bike comes with a choice of standard or wide width saddles

      10/ Seat height

      There is a choice of three seat heights:
      Standard - for those with an inside leg of up to 33 inches
      Extended (an extra 6cm longer) for riders with an inside leg of up to 35 inches
      Telescopic (two parts which slide into each other) for very tall riders

      11/ Suspension

      Until 2018, the rear suspension block came in standard (for riders up to 70kg) and firm for heavier riders or those just wanting a firmer ride
      From 2018 onwards there is just the one suspension block - equivalent to the old firm/hard susension block

      12/ Reflectors/Lighting

      As standard the bike comes with front and rear reflectors
      A hub dynamo system is also available, the older Shimano or SON front wheel powered hub dynamos are about to be replaced (for 2019 model bikes) with a new hub dynamo system
      Front and rear battery lights with Brompton specific mountings (so as not to interfere with the fold) are also available - there is a CatEye Volt 400 for the front and a choice of saddle mounted CatEye (requires one of the newer saddles with fixing points) and Spanninga rear light

      So we can ensure that you get the right bike for you - Brompton bikes are not available for shipping - only for collection from our Chobham shop

      We keep at least six Brompton folding bikes in stock for instant collection, in a range of models and colours

      A fully specified demo bike is also available by appointment for you to try. It's a M-type (traditional Brompton / BMX style handlebars) with six speeds, rack, Eazy Wheels and a telescopic seatpost (so should fit everyone)

      Brompton bike customisation!

      If you want one of our stock bikes - but slightly different (e.g. different tyres, different lighting, different gearing) - we can do that for you

    • Brompton Electric Bikes

      From Brompton - the definitive folding bicycle company, comes a new bike - the Brompton Electric - the most compact folding E-bike on the market. So now if you want an electric bike that folds, you no longer need to find and install a Brompton Electric compatible kit - you can get an actual Brompton Electric. 

      OK I'm sold already - how long will it take to get one?

      The current lead time at Brompton (as at August 2019) is approximately 9 weeks - they are popular, demand is great so there is a backlog. Luckily we have more Brompton Electric bikes on order and coming soon!

      Can my current Brompton folding bike be made electric?

      The Brompton Electric is a complete electric bike - some of the components are strengthened to allow for the extra weight / torque generated by the bike

      An electric bike that folds - meet the Brompton Electric

      The front wheel has an electric motor developed with Williams - the F1 company. It is powered by a battery in the front luggage, which simply unclips from the bike for storage / charging

      Like the classic Brompton it folds to a compact size so you can store under your desk when at work or without taking up too much space on your private jet!

      Designed so that you will arrive at your destination quickly and easily (and not sweaty!)

      Why not come and take a test ride at our shop in Chobham, Surrey, England?

      Brompton Electric Options:

      There are not so many combinations of colour / gearing / handlebars / mudguards with the Brompton Electric as with the standard Brompton range - so the choice will be easier as there is a choice of 8 bikes in total (though of course you can choose an additional bag / seat post height / saddle width or toolkit - we can take care of that at pickup time)

      Colours:

      The Brompton Electric folding bike is currently available in two colours:

      • Black
      • White

      Both colours have black detailing (cranks / rims / hubs / handlebars / seat post etc) and an electric blue logo / decal

      Bag / battery

      The battery for the Brompton electric is stored in a removable bag. There are two bags available

      • Small - for carrying essentials such as phone and keys or a battery charger - this is the standard bag
      • Large - for carrying a change of clothes / water bottle etc - this is available at an extra cost

      Both bags have access to a USB port on the battery so you can charge your mobile phone while riding

      Gearing

      The Brompton Electric folding bike has less gear choices than the standard Brompton

      • 2 speed - using Bromptons 2 speed derailleur system
      • 6 speed - using a Sturmey Archer BWR wide ratio rear wheel in conjunction with Bromptons 2 speed derailleur system

      With the powerful Williams developed 250W motor you will probably only need 2 gears (saving a bit of weight) unless you live in a very hilly area

      Charger

      The Brompton Electric has two available chargers

      • 2A charger - this is the standard charger and takes approx. 4.5 hours to fully charge the battery
      • 4A / fast charge charger - this is an optional extra but reduces the charge time to approx 2.5 hours. This can be useful if you are out doing a long ride which include stops (for lunch etc)

      Spare chargers are available in our Brompton Electric spare parts and accessories section - so why not keep one at home and one at work (just in case you get caught short)

    • Frog Kids Bikes

      Frog kids bikes

      We keep - in stock - a complete range of Frog lightweight bicycles and balance bikes for children / kids / young adults

      A local (to us) husband and wife wanted their children to enjoy cycling - but were frustrated that the majority of childrens bikes were either too heavy or poor build quality, so they decided they could do better and founded Frog

      Frog are now going from strength to strength (and the ones we have sold are loved by their riders - in fact they don't like letting us have them back for the free 6 week checkup!)

      Assembly the Frog bikes has recently been moved from the far east to Wales - bringing more jobs to the UK

      The bikes also hold their value remarkably well - often listed on e-bay second hand at nearly new bike prices

      We aim to keep one of each size in our Chobham shop (in various colours so that we can show the different colours and help you size your childs bike) - we also keep a stock ready for building at short notice

      What does the number mean (e.g. Frog 62, Frog 55)

      The number on the Frog bikes describes the size - measured by inside leg measurement (e.g. Frog 48 refers to an inside leg of 48 cm). Frog base their sizing based on this rather than wheel size (there are often a couple of bikes in each wheel size but with different frame sizes - so you can find the perfect fit

      The smallest in the range are called the Tadpole - these are balance bikes, so no pedals - for your child to learn balance (as the name balance bike implies) by running along while sitting on the saddle - then taking their feet off the ground as confidence grows - they have just one (rear) brake

      There are three first ride bicycles - the Frog 43, 48 and 52SS, which allow the child to concentrate on pedalling and have just one speed (so no need to worry about trying to co-ordinate gears and pedalling at the same time. We often find that to start, its better to remove the pedals and use as a balance bike - even for just the first day or so (this generally works better than stabilisers as it doesn't build a reliance)

      Then there are the Frog hybrid bikes - 52 all the way up to 78 (based on inside leg). These have a single front chain ring (for simplicity and lightness) and non-suspension front forks (again, to save weight). They are equally capable off and on road

    • Intense Spares

      Spare parts for your Intense bike

      The official website for Intense spare parts can be found here

      We have been having difficulty getting spare parts from Intense since they started selling direct - we would suggest that if you can't find what you want that you contact them 

      Bearings, top and bottom links, axles, derailleur hangers, dropouts and more - the stuff you need to keep your Intense bike in top condition

    • Moulton Bicycles

    • Orbea Bikes

      Orbea have been making bikes in the Basque region of Spain since the 1930's

      We're really happy to be riding / stocking / selling them since 2017 :-)

      There is a complete collection of bikes available for all riding styles - for Road, Gravel, Mountain, Leisure / City and Kids

      You can even design your own specification and colours, for delivery to us (click and collect - where we do the pre delivery setup/inspection so you don't have to stress about it)

      Orbea doesn’t make women’s bicycles....

      they make bikes that women ride!

      The women of UHC Pro Cycling Team win on the same Orbeas raced in the Tour de France by the men of Team Cofdis.

      Two-time XC World Champion Catherine Pendrel of the CLIF Pro Team has never requested a woman’s bike, she instead demands we design the best mountain bikes on the market.
