WHEEL - FRONT
Genuine Brompton replacement front wheels. Available in two different models, Standard and Superlight. The standard wheel is fitted to all standard full colour Brompton bikes whereas the Superlight wheel comes fitted to bikes fitted with the grey Titanium fork and rear triangle.
The Standard wheel uses the fantastic Brompton double walled rim with machined sidewalls for better braking performance. Built using 28 Stainless Steel spokes in a radial pattern onto an alloy hub with a Steel bolted axle and includes the bolts and rim tape.
The Superlight wheel uses the same fantastic rim but is built using 28 double butted Stainless-Steel spokes onto a lighter weight alloy hub which uses a skewer and includes the skewer and rim tape. Both are available in Black or silver.

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.
