Foldable fun with 2-speed Brompton folding bicycle.

Folding bicycles are taking over urban commuting

Every year I see more folding bicycles on the street ridden by students, business people and recreational riders. Folding bicycle manufacturers are really starting to create higher quality folding bikes causing many people to give up their regular sized bicycles, and just ride the folding bicycles.

Meet the Brompton folding bicycle

It can be very confusing to choose which brand, models and price to pay as there are thousands of different folding bicycles to choose from. Many of these different brands are very good and reliable, but one bicycle manufacturer still stands out as among the best.

Hand brazed and checked for perfection in London, England is the Brompton folding bicycle. When ordering a Brompton folding bicycle you’re allowed to customize the color, gears and handlebars to fit you’re specific riding style and personality. It can take up to four to six weeks to receive one of these beauties but that long wait is well worth it.

Brompton folding bicycles have outstanding quality

Before I bought a Brompton folding bicycle I read reviews. Test rode many brands. And debated which wheels size I wanted. In the end it was the classical Brompton folding bicycle that won. It was the superb ride. Amazing appearance. And high quality that won me over.

The high quality steel frame absorbs vibrations. And the rear suspension block makes bumps virtually unnoticeable. Also the very high quality wheels and puncture resistant tires are brought to a stop with very responsive brakes. And with beefy clamps holding the folding hinges in place, this bicycle feels like a piece of solid steel.

Brompton folding bicycles can be brought anywhere

In the beginning I was unsure about the practicality of the Brompton folding bicycle. Instead it became the best bicycle I’ve ever owned. When I go to the store I bring my Brompton inside instead of locking it up outside. At restaurants, I just put I under the table or in a corner. Also, no more leaving my bicycle at work when monstrous thunderstorms occur. Now I  just bring it on to public transportation or catch a ride home from a friend.

Brompton folding bicycles have the best fold

Brompton folding bicycles are not only known for their quality, but also the way they fold. They fold very fast and easily, similar to the shape of a box. And once folded the seatpost locks everything into place. Unlike the competition, the Brompton never comes unfolded while being carried or rolled. Also the derailleur is covered by the front wheel, preventing damage, and oil from getting on your clothes.

My Brompton folding bicycle requires little maintainence. They do cost more than the competition but the quality is much better. A Brompton will last much longer with less repairs. Also no other folding bicycle will fold as small and tidy.
