BROMPTON S6L Black/Black 2017
|Description||Worthy of being considered a modern day design classic, the Brompton bicycle represents a simple concept elegantly executed to produce a bike that is strong, agile, practical and of course ultimately extremely portable, the Brompton bicycle could be argued to be the bench mark against which all other folding bikes are judged.
This may be considered something of a sweeping statement which is why we are always careful not to describe Brompton as the 'best' folding bike (which is a question often asked of us) as this is entirely subjective depending on the situation the bike is to be used. The Brompton can however be described as the 'best' in the areas in which it excels, there is certainly no other practical folding bike that can fold as small and in our opinion we would be happy to make claim that Brompton have a build quality that is matched by few and surpassed by no other manufacturer of folding bikes.
The hand brazed steel fame (with a titanium option also available) comes with various options, all of which can be customer defined if desired from the colour through to the gearing. The most significant of these options would be that of the handlebar style which will define the bar height (a choice of the H, M, S or P type) and the gearing (which can range from one speed through to 6, with the additional option to raise or lower the gearing to suit the rider). Beyond this the additional options will tend to be what additional items may be fitted to the bike (ie. mudguards, rack, lights etc), or personal preferences including perhaps the hardest choice of all, the colour!
The folded size is largely unaffected by the various options and measures 585mm high x 545mm long x 270mm wide (23" x 21.5" x 10.6"). The total weight of a Brompton bicycle can range from 9 Ã¢Â¡" 12Ã‚Â½ kg (20 Ã¢Â¡" 28lbs) depending on the configuration selected.
