Brompton rims 

In 2013 Brompton changed from a single wall rim made by Alex wheels to a double walled rim.

The single walled rim used the same rim for both front and rear wheels.

The double wall rim comes in two styles - with straight drilled and angled holes. All front wheels use the straight drilled rims, but the rear wheel rim depends upon the hub.

Please double check the hub / wheel combination by looking at the data sheet downloadable on the product pages.

Brompton spokes

The Brompton spokes come in different lengths depending upon the wheel and rim combination. There is a data sheet on each spoke page showing a matrix of what goes with what.

Spokes for Brompton bikes come in 3 profiles:

  • Plain / Straight gauge - these are a standard thickness throughout the length of the spoke
  • Single butted - these spokes have a different thickness at one end compared to the rest of the spoke
  • Double butted - these are thicker at both ends than in the middle of the spoke

The spoke (not poke as spell check suggested) gauge 13g / 14g refers to the thickness of the spoke - not the weight

We sell spokes as a standard set of 28 (for the Brompton rim/wheel) and also as singles - should you just wish to replace the odd one / carry one as a spare - for example when travelling on holiday.
