NICKEL EDITION - M6L - NICKEL/BLACK - 2017
♥ Staff Pick
The ultra exclusive and rather beautiful Brompton Nickel Edition Bikes are back and as stunning as ever. Featuring a brushed and highly polished Nickel Plated main frame and a number of key components in gloss black rather than the usual silver, this is a truly beautiful and unique bike.
The highly polished electrolysis nickel plating creates exceptional anti-corrosion resistance, normally reserved for industrial mining equipment. Minor variations to the finish appear on each bike, ensuring that the final look is incredibly unique.
This 2017 Brompton M6L Nickel Edition uses the M type bar which is Brompton's mid-height handlebar and is the sweet-spot for shorter riders who want to sit upright or average-height riders who want a bike that is both efficient yet comfortable. The six speed offers all the gears you could ever want for local use plus holidays or travel, and comes with super puncture-resistant Marathon tires, front and rear fenders to keep you dry and the Brompton carrier block for adding any Brompton bag you desire.

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.
