Brompton Electric
$3,500.00 - $3,675.00
We are currently accepting deposits to reserve a Brompton Electric for June/July 2019 delivery. We anticipate an overwhelming demand for the Brompton Electric and urge you to preorder as soon as possible as the number of bicycles being imported into the US in 2019 will be limited. The deposit is $500 and is transferable, and refundable. We expect the Brompton Electric to sell (depending on model) between $3500 (2S) and $3650 (6S), however, please realize that the absolute final pricing has not been solidified. Please select "In store pickup" when prompted. Shipping (if needed) is additional and will be determined once we receive the bikes. Please call or email us with questions. We will have demo bikes with both 2 and 6 speed drivetrains available in May 2019. Please call Jeffrey Palter 617-230-0131 for immediate assistance. The Brompton Electric folding bike is the most compact electric folding bike available. The electric assist system provides power to flatten out the hills and increase your speed while still allowing you to enjoy all the benefits that riding a bicycle provides. After years of planning and design, Brompton was able to achieve a lightweight electric bike without increasing the folded size that Brompton is famous for. Brompton’s electric assist system was designed in partnership with the Williams Advanced Engineering Team, who combined their technical Formula One and Formula E knowledge to develop an electric bike motor that meets the complex demands of a Brompton. The Brompton Electric iPhone app will allow you to customize your ride settings and track your mileage while the smart sensor tells the motor when to provide assist. Ride into the wind or up hills with ease. The 300Wh battery provides energy to maintain 15 MPH with a range of between 25 to 50 miles from a single charge and also has an integrated display to select four different power assist options. The range of the Brompton Electric is dependent on the user output, assist level settings, and conditions of the ride, such as wind and hills. The battery 6.40 lb. (2.9kg) separates with one click from the lightweight electric bike approximately 30.25 lb. (13.7kg) making it easy to carry--and ride as a pedal only version should you like. A pedal-only "acoustic" Brompton usually weighs somewhere between 26 and 28 lbs. well equipped. The compact fold of the Brompton Electric allows you store it safely inside your home or workplace, where theft is less likely. The Brompton Electric bike is available with either a gloss black or gloss white frame, with an option of either two or six speeds, and two handlebar height options -- either a M type (lower) or H type (more upright) riding position. There are also three different seatpost options depending on rider height as per usual with Brompton bicycles. The standard Brompton Electric charger that comes with the bike is a 2A charger. Charge time is approximately 4.5 hours to to full charge. The optional 4A fast charger reduces the charge time to approximately 2.5 hours. Price has yet to be set for the "fast" charger. All of Brompton Electric bikes come with the standard battery bag, which has a pocket to fit your essentials or your charger. There is an optional commuter battery bag available that has room for your larger items like a laptop, as well as the power supply and other items. A Fork-crown mounted headlamp is powered by the 300Wh 36V battery. We, just like you, as so excited for this electric bike--which could, perhaps, be the most anticipated ebike launch ever! For immediate assistance, call Cycle Loft's owner, Jeffrey Palter 617-230-0131 to discuss the magnificent machine.
Brompton H6L-12
$1,724.00 - $1,974.00
2019 H6L -12 Various Colors Bike Type: Standard Frame Material: Steel Handlebar: H Type Gears: 6 Speed Gear Ratio: -12 speed std ratio Mudguards/Rack Version: L - inc. mudguards no rack Main Frame: Various Extremities Color: Various Saddle Height: Standard Lighting: Reflectors only Saddle Brompton: Wide Tyre Schwalbe Marathon Racer Front Luggage: Front Carrier Block Only Rear Luggage: None Transporting: None Saddle bag: None Toolkit: None --Modifications of rear rack, seatpost, and front dyno lighting system available. Please call Jeff Palter, Owner, 617-230-0131, for an immediate response regarding this bicycle. The Brompton is a bike which rides superbly, is safe, agile and fast, yet folds easily and quickly into a highly-compact and portable package. The result is a vehicle that increases your sense of freedom and independence. Finely-engineered and elegant, the Brompton has a full-sized frame, made mainly of steel for strength and stiffness. It is designed to be practical and light enough to be genuinely portable; actual weight depends on model and configuration, but ranges from 9 – 12½ kg (20 – 28lbs). Brompton weights are true weights; unlike most bike manufacturers, we include the weight of mudguards, pedals, etc. in our figures – if it’s on the bike, we weigh it. The combination of a rigid frame and accurate alignment makes for efficient transmission of your energy and a lively, first-rate ride; countless owners use them on long journeys and for touring and many prefer the ride of a Brompton to that of conventional bikes. The Fold of a Brompton Bicycle: A key feature of the Brompton is the compactness and practicality of its fold. With a little practice, this is achieved without any difficulty in 10 - 20 seconds. The dimensions of the folded bike are: 585mm high x 545mm long x 270mm wide (23" x 21.5" x 10.6"). When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package little larger than its wheels. The folded package may be picked up without any risk that the bike will unfold - reassuring when running for a train or handing it to a cloakroom attendant! There are no projections or loose parts with the folded package and, using the frame or saddle as a handle, it carries like a small suitcase, lightweight and easy to manage. The fold is designed to keep vulnerable parts, like lights and cable-runs, out of harm's way and, by folding them in, to keep the greasy chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. Small rollers allow the bike to be pushed into inaccessible corners. **Folding: Full instructions for folding and unfolding, with diagrams, are given in the Owner Manual but these are the basic steps: All Bromptons have rear suspension, which also allows instant "parking" of the bike in the "kickstand" position. Park the bike by swinging the rear wheel under the main frame - the Brompton will stand on its own, leaving both hands free Unclamp and fold back the front wheel - the right hand pedal should be moved out of the way if necessary - and hook onto the rear frame Unclamp and lower the handlebars and saddle, and stow the folding pedal; these items can be dealt with in any order after the second step **Unfolding: Raise and clamp the saddle and handlebar, and unfold the folding pedal; these items can be dealt with in any order, but they must be unfolded before moving on to step 2 Unfold and clamp front wheel; the bike is now parked in the "kickstand" position. Lift up the rear end of the bike - a little flick is usually the most effective method - to swing the rear wheel out; the bike is ready to ride The key to understanding the fold of the Brompton is the seat pillar: it is the seat pillar which locks the folded package together by projecting down from the main frame, so preventing the rear frame from rotating, which in turn prevents the front wheel from swinging free. If the seat pillar is visible below the main frame, do not try to park or unpark the Brompton, and do not try to hook or unhook the front wheel from the rear frame. Similarly, if the seat pillar is not fully down, the folded package may fall open when the bike is picked up.

Please call Jeff Palter, Owner, 617-230-0131, for an immediate response regarding this bicycle. The Brompton is a bike which rides superbly, is safe, agile and fast, yet folds easily and quickly into a highly-compact and portable package. The result is a vehicle that increases your sense of freedom and independence. Finely-engineered and elegant, the Brompton has a full-sized frame, made mainly of steel for strength and stiffness. It is designed to be practical and light enough to be genuinely portable; actual weight depends on model and configuration, but ranges from 9 – 12½ kg (20 – 28lbs). Brompton weights are true weights; unlike most bike manufacturers, we include the weight of mudguards, pedals, etc. in our figures – if it’s on the bike, we weigh it. The combination of a rigid frame and accurate alignment makes for efficient transmission of your energy and a lively, first-rate ride; countless owners use them on long journeys and for touring and many prefer the ride of a Brompton to that of conventional bikes. The Fold of a Brompton Bicycle: A key feature of the Brompton is the compactness and practicality of its fold. With a little practice, this is achieved without any difficulty in 10 - 20 seconds. The dimensions of the folded bike are: 585mm high x 545mm long x 270mm wide (23" x 21.5" x 10.6"). When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package little larger than its wheels. The folded package may be picked up without any risk that the bike will unfold - reassuring when running for a train or handing it to a cloakroom attendant! There are no projections or loose parts with the folded package and, using the frame or saddle as a handle, it carries like a small suitcase, lightweight and easy to manage. The fold is designed to keep vulnerable parts, like lights and cable-runs, out of harm's way and, by folding them in, to keep the greasy chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. Small rollers allow the bike to be pushed into inaccessible corners. **Folding: Full instructions for folding and unfolding, with diagrams, are given in the Owner Manual but these are the basic steps: All Bromptons have rear suspension, which also allows instant "parking" of the bike in the "kickstand" position. Park the bike by swinging the rear wheel under the main frame - the Brompton will stand on its own, leaving both hands free Unclamp and fold back the front wheel - the right hand pedal should be moved out of the way if necessary - and hook onto the rear frame Unclamp and lower the handlebars and saddle, and stow the folding pedal; these items can be dealt with in any order after the second step **Unfolding: Raise and clamp the saddle and handlebar, and unfold the folding pedal; these items can be dealt with in any order, but they must be unfolded before moving on to step 2 Unfold and clamp front wheel; the bike is now parked in the "kickstand" position. Lift up the rear end of the bike - a little flick is usually the most effective method - to swing the rear wheel out; the bike is ready to ride The key to understanding the fold of the Brompton is the seat pillar: it is the seat pillar which locks the folded package together by projecting down from the main frame, so preventing the rear frame from rotating, which in turn prevents the front wheel from swinging free. If the seat pillar is visible below the main frame, do not try to park or unpark the Brompton, and do not try to hook or unhook the front wheel from the rear frame. Similarly, if the seat pillar is not fully down, the folded package may fall open when the bike is picked up.
