Brompton Front wheel : This is a standard (as opposed to extra / super light) Brompton front wheel. 

Double wall rim version of the wheel - introduced by Brompton at the beginning of 2013. The rim is the straight drilled hole version (Q part code: QRIM-28-STD). The rim tape is now yellow (previous to the 2013 and onwards model it was blue)

The Brompton front wheel size is 16 x 1 3/8 - ISO/ETRTO 37-349 (although really that's the default tyre size - the wheel takes tyres with a diameter 349mm)

This 16 inch front wheel manufactured by Brompton for their folding bike range comes complete with the following:

  • Wheel nuts
  • Washers
  • Tab washers
  • Rim tape (yellow for the double wall rim)
  • Fitting instructions.

The Brompton front wheel is radially laced - meaning that the spokes come out from the hub to the rim without criss-crossing any other spokes. This gives a nice clean look.

Cone nuts: Outer locknut requires a 15mm cone wrench (or spanner) / inner requires a 14mm cone wrench

Brompton Q part code: QFWSS
Brompton part number: 9025008

Does not fit my Brompton!

Received promptly, but BIG problem when coming to fit it. The axle is only 105mm long, compared to 115mm on my old wheel (as on bike when bought). As a result cannot get all washers and nuts on (not helped by cones symmetrical on axle: even with previous longer axle some offset desirable to cater for mudguard stay). Another problem - over locknuts the hub is about 3mm shorter than the previous, so requires washers inside the forks (or are you supposed to bend them?). Have Brompton altered the fork spread without telling anyone? This wheel is going back.

    Just what I have come to expect from Brilliant Bikes...

    The correct part at the right price and unexpectedly quickly delivered. Makes crashing and ruining a wheel almost worthwhile :-)
