BROMPTONP6RD - RAW LACQUER - SON DYNAMO - MARATHON - 2018
This 2018 Brompton P6RD Folding Bike with Son Dynamo System is finished in the premium Raw Lacquer Showing off the quite beautiful hand brazing, it is so raw that it still even has the burn marks from the hand torch. It really has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
It uses the P-Type bar which is Brompton's touring handlebar. This handlebar is has a low point similar to an S-Bar and a high point in line with an H-Bar and is designed to provide riders with multiple positions for longer trips so your hands do not get tired. Also good if you like an upright bike but want the flexibility of an aerodynamic position.
The Six Speed Standard Gearing offers all the gears you could ever want for local use plus any travel you wish to do, and comes with super puncture-resistant Schwalbe Marathon tires, front and rear fenders to keep you dry and the awesome Brompton front carrier block for carrying any of the Brompton bags.
Also fitted is the awesome top of the range Schmidt Son Dynamo System. Using the super low resistance Son XS dynamo hub, the top of the line B&M front LED light and a rear LED light designed especially for Brompton by Spanninga. You can keep this super bright lighting system on 24/7 safe in the knowledge that you are both safe and visible.
The Brompton Rear Rack finishes things off allowing you to mount extra luggage but more importantly it allows you to roll the bike much easier as it runs on four easy wheels instead of two making transport a breeze.

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.
