GEAR SHIFTERS WITH INTEGRATED BRAKE LEVERS
Genuine Brompton Gear Shifters with Integrated Brake Levers. These awesome units were introduced in 2017 and improved the shifting ergonomics and streamlined the look of the Brompton.
Fitted as standard to all new Brompton bikes and available for the Left 2-speed and right 3-speed shifters in both black and silver. These shifter/brake levers are a fantastic upgrade to older bikes and the A Line. If you are upgrading, you may need to change the brake and gear cables and you will also need a new 2017 Derailleur Cable Anchorage & Spring Set.

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 rideability 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.
