I make several brake conversions for the Brompton – fitting disc brakes gives you much more powerful braking, which is also almost completely unaffected by the weather, mud or road dirt. Fitting disc brakes needs fittings welded on to the frame, but the disc brakes can’t be retrofitted to existing forks, they’re too narrow, so as with the Rohloff Brompton kit I make completely new forks in Columbus Zona steel.
Front Disc Brakes: Don’t forget to tell me which colour you want the forks painted. Kit includes a new fork, front wheel, brake caliper, rotor and everything else you need.
I can also build up the front wheel with a SON Delux hub and add an Edelux II front light and a rear light if you want to add top quality dynamo lighting at the same time, as shown in the above picture. Or the SP hub dynamo and Avy light is a more affordable option.
Rear Disc Brakes: Because the normal Brompton rear frame won’t work with disc brakes, for these kits I’ll assume you’re fitting either my Rohloff Brompton kit or Alfine kit at the same time. So this kit includes only the brake caliper, rotor, and all parts needed to fit with a gearing upgrade kit.
