You can go from riding your bike to carrying it in under 20 seconds. No more worries about getting your bike in the back of the car, on the bus or up the stairs at home - you can just pick it up and carry it.
A key feature of the Brompton is the compactness and practicality of its fold. With a little practice, this is achieved without any difficulty in 10 - 20 seconds. The dimensions of the folded bike are: 585mm high x 545mm long x 270mm wide (23" x 21.5" x 10.6").
Check out this video to see how it works.
When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package just a little larger than its wheels. The folded package may be picked up without any risk that the bike will unfold - reassuring when running for a bus or handing it to a cloakroom attendant!
There are no projections or loose parts with the folded package and, using the frame or saddle as a handle, it carries like a small suitcase. Lightweight and easy to manage. The way the Bromton folds is designed to keep vulnerable parts, like lights and cable-runs, out of harm's way. And it keeps the greasy chain and gears away from your clothing and luggage. Small rollers allow the bike to be pushed into inaccessible corners for easy retrieval later.
The owners of Pedal On both use Brompton bikes on a regular basis and are happy to talk you through the options and help you get out on the road. Give us a call today - 021 055 6865.
