Read here how one of our customers rides his Brompton to and from airports as well.
In a world of remarkably engineered and superbly manufactured products Brompton stands out.
A Brompton folder exceptionally provides and integrates functionality, style, riding enjoyment, performance, utility, comfort, reliability and durability with superb foldability. Quite the mouthful but true nevertheless. Legions of discerning owners can attest to this as does Brompton's exceptionally high resale value.
And not mere foldability but achieved in 10-20 seconds, with great ease and precision into an exceptionally small package: 11" wide x 22" long x 23" high (or exactly 270 mm x 545 mm x 565 mm).
Come in and see for yourself: Our Seattle store always has demos available for test rides. Despite ever increased production capabilities by the London factory global demand for Brompton bicycles is also this year expected to exceed supply. However as a long established dealer we experience manageable delivery time and on the rare occasion we even stock bikes (albeit obviously briefly).
The folding bike is an evolving industry in the U.S. Finding competent, experienced and committed service remains a frequent consumer concern.
However, what we sell we service. Our full service department was established in 2004 and is staffed to preferentially support the owners of the bikes they bought from us—and to do so expertly, promptly and flexibly.
You'll find below a few examples of models differentiated basis whether 2, 3 or 6 speed, rear rack (R) or front+rear battery lights (R-plus). Choice of handle bars: traditional upright (M), straight (S) or touring (P). The new H bar offers a more upright riding position than the M and P bars. Bikes built incorporating the Titanium package are denoted -X.

Brompton Bicycle by David Henshaw tells the fascinating story of arguably the world's most accomplished and acclaimed folding bike. See Review pdf. Available also in our Seattle store. $25.
The Brompton folds uniquely, crisply, predictably and quickly with the greatest ease into unequalled compactness: 11"(w) x 22"(l) x 23"(h) or a mere 56" = the three dimensions added up. See article about Jet Blue and Folding Bikes.
