The best bit about having a Brompton is being able to fold and unfold it - during your commute, while travelling, or to show off to literally everyone who asks how it works. What's not cool is dealing with scratches that can happen over time with use, or due to an overzealous pedal fold that pushes the pedal against the frame.
Luckily Brompton has again thought of everything with their Protective Frame Patches. Made of a clear adhesive vinyl, they can be placed on your frame wherever you want extra protection from contact wear and tear - under the fork hook on the chain stay, along the frame, or down the seat post alongside the folding pedal. The best bit is they're totally transparent, meaning you get all the protection while keeping the aesthetic beauty of your Brompton.
The set includes two patches - one that measures 3.5cm x 3.5cm (1-3/8" x 1-3/8"), and the other 2cm x 6cm (3/4" x 2-3/8").

A BIT ABOUT BROMPTON: If you were to walk into the store and look at a Brompton we would say there are three things you should look for in a folding bike. All of them are fairly obvious. One, the bike should ride well - and, on a small wheeled bike that's tricky because there's a fine line between maneuverability (which is a virtue) and twitchiness (which is a vice). Two, the bike should fold well - otherwise you're blood pressure will rise and you'll curse the day you bought it. Third, it should be transportable, or highly storable - because that's the whole point, right?
Brompton is the only company we've seen that answers all three criteria - and believe us, we've tried every brand out there. The reason others can't compete is because Brompton has answered a fundamental engineering problem. If a bike is going to unfold to a large footprint (which takes the twitch out) then it is unfolding to a bigger bike - and by all logic, a bigger bike unfolded would be a bigger bike folded. So, it's pretty much true that for most folding bikes they either have great rideabilty but poor transportability or vice versa. And nearly all of them are a mess to fold.
Not Brompton. Brompton has designed the Platonic form of all folding bikes. The bike folds to the smallest size on the market, unfolds in a highly precise and easy manner, and has the same axle-to-axle footprint as a hybrid bike. How did they do this? By not only designing a clever frame, but also designing some 1200 proprietary parts that make everything fit - and fit perfectly. Oh, and nearly all of this is made in England. No wonder this bike has a cult following.
