Brompton Folding Bicycles
Dales Cycles Glasgow Store stocks a wide range of Brompton bikes including the new special edition Black Bike released in May 2015 sporting a black seat post and handle bar stem.
The Brompton is an award winning folding bike made for a modern urban environment, designed to last and be taken anywhere. A Brompton will easily fold up to a compact size that can be taken onto any public transport, fit in any boot and even stored under your desk at work, 565 × 545 × 250 mm when fully folded and weighing between 9-13kg a Brompton truly is a commuters bike.
This hard wearing steel framed style icon isn't just nice to look at, its design was first released in 1979 and over the years modified slightly to give us the rugged hard wearing urban bike for cyclists that we see today. Its modular design is based around a curved frame with a hinged main tube allowing the 16" wheels to swing round when folded and the handlebars and seat post both fit inside the compact block with a quick locking of the saddle keeping the whole compact shape in place.
Brompton's should be able to be folded from their upright form to the compact shape in about 20 seconds, the gears and chain rings are stored in the middle to avoid any contact with clothing. Click here to see how our man Krister fared when put to the clock
Coming with a seemingly never ending array of modifications from colours, materials, accessories, handlebars, luggage and gears, each Brompton is easily one of the most iconic and individually stylised bikes on the road today.
