Each Brompton can be custom made to your exact requirements. Choose from a range of colours, gears, handlebars, luggage and accessories.
The clever design means that the bike can easily be folded or unfolded in under 20 seconds. When folded the bike is locked together in a compact package, which can be carried or towed easily and conveniently stored almost anywhere.
The four handlebar types offer different ride positions for various styles of riding. The handlebar options mean that the bike will give a superb, comfortable riding position.
The small wheels afford the bike great acceleration and manoeuvrability, ideal for stop-start city riding in traffic. The smaller wheel diameter also increases the strength and rigidity of the wheels.
UNFOLDING IN SHEFFIELD
JE James Cycles are ecstatic to be the very first Premiere Brompton Store In Sheffield, and in South Yorkshire. Being known as 'The Outdoor City', there is no shortage of demand for activities of all kinds in Sheffield. When it comes to cycling, the Peak District may be the playground for many people on the weekend, but Monday to Friday the city types still need to get about. This is where Brompton shines, allowing you to be flexible with a bike that is convenient for any commute or just nipping about. You don’t have to worry about locking and leaving your steed, and it gives you the option to hop on and off a bus or train should you want, or have to. Our newly developed store is the home to the full range of Brompton folding bikes including the eagerly awaited electric Brompton - now available for test rides! It’s an experience you can't fully appreciate until you have tried one. So with three different bikes to test ride, it really is time to see how super Sheffield really is.
THE ELECTRIC BIKE
Electric bikes aren’t what they once were. Now we have seen the arrival of Electric Road Bikes, there are certainly no limits. So it was only a matter of time until we saw the Brompton Electric Bike. What you will experience with this bike is an electric motor that has been designed to meet the complex demands of a Brompton. Whether flying around the city, needing to pick up speed or, if you’re in Sheffield, met with many hills that you need to quickly climb without breaking a sweat. Then your ride settings can be customised, choosing the level of assistance you need for your rides, and the smart sensor technology knows when to assist you. Clever aye. There is no compromise here, the battery is under 3.kg and the lightweight bike is still as simple to fold, and compact as ever, so you can transport and carry it easily, and safely store the bike inside your home or workplace.
THE RETURN OF CHPT3
Due to the phenomenal demand, you might have missed the first collaboration between Brompton and David Miller with their CHPT3 bike. Released again for 2019, this bike is simply stunning and sleek, with no mudguards, premium Ergon handlebar grips and always desirable Tan-wall tyres. With its unique style, you’re guaranteed to stand out in any city. Getting you from A to B quickly, like David Miller, If you want fast and fierce, this is the Brompton for you. It’ll bring a whole new meaning to the rat race in any city.
