Handlebar Height
There are three definitive handlebar heights - Each with their own unique characteristics for riding. The M, S and H Type. They don't only change the Bar Hight but the feel of the Bike too. The Different Bars also use a different Frame Stem length so it's important to get it right as it's not easy to change after.
We advise test riding each handlebar option if you can to determine your perfect match.
Frame Colours and Options
For all steel Bromptons, you may select separate colours for the main frame and the extremities. These colours may be the same OR different EXCEPT for Black Raw Lacquer and Flame Lacquer

Gearing Options
There are four Gearing options and each can be lowered or raised to suit your riding style.
The lowered gearing options make pedalling easier... but reducing your top speed.
The raised gearing option makes pedalling harder... but increasing your top speed.

Mudguards & Rack

The mudguards keep the bike and the rider dry and also provides stability when folded and parked.

Previously known as the L-Type

This option provides the additional functionality of a luggage rack over the rear wheel. The die-cast aluminium rack comes with shock cords for tying items on, and a specially-designed Rack Sack is also available for use with it. The rear rack also allows the optional fitting of larger roller wheels, enabling the folded bike to be pulled along instead of carried.

Previously known as the R-Type
Seat Height
For an inside leg over 84cm/33" you should almost certainly fit an extended or telescopic seat pillar; the latter is best for an inside leg over 90cm/35", or for taller riders wishing to minimise the height of the folded bicycle.

The standard seat pillar is the default option; its shorter length keeps the weight down and ensures the most compact folded package. A standard seat pillar should be fine for anyone with an inside leg measurement of 33"/840mm or less.
60mm (over 2 inches) longer than the standard seat pillar and a bit heavier, designed for those with longer legs and available at no extra charge. The main drawback is that the seat pillar protrudes correspondingly higher from the folded package.
The telescopic seat pillar is designed for those with an inside leg greater than 35"/890mm or for taller riders wishing to minimise how far the seat pillar protrudes from the folded package. The telescopic seat pillar gives up to 175mm (almost 7 inches) more elevation yet, when lowered, the saddle projects only 20mm above the folded package.

Handle Bar Grips
Add to your comfort and style by changing the standard grip.
For the M and H Type the Grips will need to be shortened to fit.
The grips that come as standard from Brompton

Available in Small or Large.
Maximum comfort and best possible pressure distribution, Turn the grip to get the correct support platform position.The bar end and support platform can be independently adjusted to suit riding position and style.
The popular GP1, but with the feel and comfort of natural cork.

The unique qualities of cork means that it is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Cork's natural damping qualities also make it an ideal grip material, and its low density mean the resulting grip is a lot lighter. The BioKork grips use 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal which is certified for its ecologically sound production.

This ecological theme is continued throughout the rest of the grip. The inner core is plastic reinforced using natural fibre, which make up 40% of its mass. In place of mineral oil, the gel in the palm section of the grip is vegetable oil based. It is all a result of Ergon's "GreenLab" initiative.

The design of Brooks Cambium Slender Grips incorporates an aluminium shell around which the bar tape is wrapped in the manner of traditional handlebar tape. The tape is made from organic cotton and natural rubber and is held in place by aluminium clamps which can be removed to replace the tape if necessary.

Brooks Slender Leather Grips feature vegetable tanned leather and cork tape, and are designed to offer an alternative performance option for the user, while maintaining the standard for sustainability set by the Plump Grips, allowing the user to replace worn parts if necessary.
Available in Black, Brown, Honey and may others.
The popular GP1 shape combined with an innovative Bio-friendly leather moulding technology. Free from toxins, the Alpine raw hide leather is dyed using vegetable dye, and moulded to form this luxury ergonomic grip. The leather is 'open pore' and certified hypoallergenic.
The lightest Marathon. RaceGuard for good puncture protection. SpeedGrip Compound for the best handling characteristics. With its LiteSkin sidewall the Racer stays at an excellent weight level. A very sporty Marathon tire.
The Marathons are a little heavier than the Brompton tyres and the deep uni-directional tread, which gives superior grip, also means that they are not quite as free-running. But they are solidly-built, with both a Kevlar belt and a thicker sidewall to lower the risk of pinch-punctures. Like the Brompton tyres, they also come with reflective sidewalls, eliminating the need for reflectors on the wheel spokes.
Punctures are a memory. The SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer. The SmartGuard belt does not increase rolling resistance. The MARATHON PLUS rolls as easily as a tyre without protection.
Lightweight slick tyre excels on the road Fast and sporty RaceGuard protection belt

Dedicated toolkit for Brompton bikes.
Brompton make one of the world's most iconic folding bicycles. Originally designed in 1977, it has been continuously refined ever since. However there has never been a dedicated toolkit for the bike. That's now changed: this new toolkit fits discretely within the front frame tube such that, when the bike is in use, the toolkit is fully enclosed within the frame. The kit includes all the tools necessary for most road-side repairs in a compact, lightweight unit. Perhaps the most innovative features of the kit are the space-saving double-ended driver bits and the unique tyre levers. These make removing tyres substantially easier and also incorporate 10 and 12mm spanners (patent-pending).
