Warning: Last items in stock!
The Brompton extra light wheel has been unavailable for quite a while - but should it's back!
This replacement Brompton front wheel has a hollow axle and is secured using an allen bolt (included). The wheel weighs in (according to our scales) at 535g, giving you a saving of 115g over the standard Brompton wheel - perfect for those wanting to lose a bit of weight.
Rim tape and axle fittings are also included.
Please note: Picture shows the pre-2013 wheel.
Brompton Q part code: QFWSS-SL
Brompton old Q part code (pre 2015): QFWSS-XL
Brompton part number: 9025015
Note: The hub has distinct left and right hand sides. This is because the axle protrudes by a different amount on each side to accommodate the mudguard stay.
It is essential that the wheel is fitted the correct way round.
If not fitted the correct way round, the wheel may not be properly secured and may come loose.
To help you with installation the hub is colour coded with the left side of the hub having a red axle cap. In addition the axle stubs are marked "L" and "R". (That is left and right as you are sitting on the bike facing forwards)
To fit, use the same tab-washers as on the old wheel (note: on some P-type Bromptons, there is a special RH tab washer), but discard (maybe keep for the future?) any plain M8 washers.
Insert the allen bolt through the front axle spacer bush and tab washer, and into the axle from the right hand side. Make sure that the left hand tab washer and wire-form are in place, and screw in the left hand nut and tighten.
These instructions, along with diagram are also supplied with the wheel.
