I got this as a replacement for my standard hub wheel where the rim cracked after one too many potholes.
The wide ratios make a big difference and brilliant bikes even contacted me to offer to fit the tyre, tube and sprocket that I irdered at the same time so I swapped wheels I've and was back on the road in ten minutes

      If using the BWR hub as a three speed, what are the ratios please? I currently have a 44 chainring and 15 sprocket. Also, does it require an new trigger shifter? Thank you. Answer:
      The six speed (using a 13/16T combination) with reduced gearing (44T) front has the following ratios: 1st 2:32m / 2nd: 2.86m / 3rd: 3.64m / 4th: 4.48m / 5th: 5.71m / 6th: 7.03m. Changing to 3 speed BWR you could choose 13T or 16T (or 12T). 13T would give you equivalent to 2nd, 4th and 6th. 16T would give you equivalent to 1st, 3rd and 5th. The shifter is the same as a standard 3 speed as the pull ratio is the same

      can i use this with my new 6 speed brompton 2019 model. Answer:
      Yes - the 6 speed Brompton uses a 3 speed BWR rear wheel in combination with a 2 speed derailleur to give the six speeds
