WHEEL - REAR
Genuine Brompton replacement rear wheels. Available in 1/2 speed, 3-Speed BSR (3 speed bikes) and 3-Speed BWR (6-Speed bikes). Hand-built in the Brompton factory in London using 28 stainless steel spokes and the fantastic Brompton double walled alloy rim with machined side walls for better braking performance.
The 1/2-Speed wheel uses an alloy hub with sealed bearings and a Shimano style splined cassette. The 3-Speed BSR (Brompton Standard Range) uses a standard Sturmey Archer hub that has been geared specifically for Brompton 3-Speed bikes. The 3-Speed BWR (Brompton Wide Range) uses a special Sturmey Archer hub that has a larger jump between gears specifically for Brompton 6-Speed bikes.
All wheels are supplied with rim tape and the 3 and 6 speed wheels include the gear indicator chain. Wheel nuts and cog-sets are sold separately.

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.
