Brompton

imageBromptons are great – and from the factory they’re perfect for what they’re designed for, short journeys around the city. But the Brompton design is capable of a lot more, with some modifications it can become the ultimate folding bike! Think of it like what Cooper did for the Mini – taking a very good bike, and improving it a bit 😉

I make a bunch of kits that can be bolted on to your existing Brompton to improve the gearing and brakes, or I can custom-build you a Brompton from scratch.

    1. It’ll be a bit of a squeeze because bikes of that age are 112mm not 115mm – but it will go, or you can bend your frame slightly to suit.

  1. Hey Ben. Brompton has introduced a new colour in 2018 – Raw Black Lacquer. Have you tried matching it yet for a rear rack / front fork?

    1. According to my powdercoater, it might be possible – but the raw lacquer finish looks a bit different on stainless steel anyway, it’s pretty hard to get an exact match.

  2. Hi Ben,
    I bought the rear rack with Rohloff speedhub. I did all the stuff by myself – not too difficult but twice a time the Allen key broke.
    Now I like to ride my Rohloff Brompton every day. Worth every Euro I paid

  3. hello Ben,
    I am riding your alfine 11 conversion now for a year and your Rohloff kit for almost half a year.
    I am still thrilled about the improvement of your conversions.
    Both hubs are fantastic and your stainless steel triangle with it´s fine brass seams
    is a kind of an art, an eye catcher indeed.
    I am riding my bromptons daily to work, no matter what season or weather, 26 Km one way,
    hills included on my way.
    I can only confirm that these conversions turn the bike into a grown-up touring bike.
    I do not need no other bikes.
    Thanks a lot, for these fantastic conversions.

    All the best, Jörn
