Help Me Choose a Brompton Bicycle

A Brompton bike is perfect for those that live, work or play in cities: The bike folds up to a third of its size, and weighs on average just 11kg for a standard model, which means a Brompton is suitable to take on all forms of transport – perfect for commuting on trains, popping in the boot of the car and taking out of the city for some fresh air, hailing a taxi when the weather changes or you want to get home late at night.

 

When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package, a little larger than its wheels.

Choosing a bike is about making sure it’s right for you. The right fit for your height, and the right style for the riding position you want. Follow this guide to find your perfect Brompton.

There are several range options available to begin your Brompton journey. The best model for you will depend on how you intend to ride the bike and the other features or benefits you are looking for, such as electric-assist, weight, or whether you want details like mudguards, for riding in all weathers.

Every Brompton features the same compact fold and all our bikes are proudly designed, developed and made in London, since 1975.

How to Find the Right Brompton Spec for You

A simple naming convention is used for each model. An M6L, for example, has an M type handlebar, is a 6 speed, and is equipped with mudguards (L).

Each option is explained in more detail below.

Choosing Your Handlebar

 

There are three handlebar types, offering different riding positions for varying heights of rider and styles of riding.

If you’re taller, you generally want your seat and handlebars higher up, if you’re on the shorter side you generally want your seat and handlebars lower.

Everyone will sit on a bike slightly differently, but if you want a sportier posture you’ll want your handle bars lower and if you want a more relaxed posture you’ll want your handle bars higher.
