  • No, that's a Steve Wood special.
    The Bromptonman sells them on his behalf.
    Really great design. Beware of imitations using the wrong plastic.

  • Was literally going to ask the same question!

  • It’s a special one!

    ;)

    Email me if you fancy one… multiple colours, the shape is fab, fits the triangle and back of the seat clamp nicely and ride quality is great.

    Comes with or without Union Jack on top.

  • Also really rating the Ez Spring for standard issue plates! Stops the plate spinning, again available in multiple colours.

    If anyone fancies just pop me an email via theBromptonman.com

  • Blah blah it’s lightweight but it’s ugly.

  • It's a fun ride but not without its issues.

    I'll like one but I don't think I'll get one as I'm pretty far down the list... ;)

  • I’m kinda tempted to pick up a P line, but ultimately I’d be happy with a ratty singlespeed… might have invested in 2 T lines tho…

  • We are speaking the same language! ;)

  • Crazy money and all that, but jeez the 4 speed low with guards would be my perfect ride. Of course I’d immediately load up the front bag with soup for lunch, pastries, laptop, keys, phone, taking the weight to more like 16kg. For that reason (and no money) I’m oot!!

  • Bonkers money & it's ugly!
    Would rather buy an E Brompton.

  • ti main frame construction & welds look ugly from the pics...
    Not sure about all the carbon too for a bike that will get knocked about a fair bit if used on transportation
    When the T line was announced after just buying a P line I was a bit gutted, but I would choose the bike I have now anyway :)

  • #buyersgonnabuy

    Brought one for myself (low-urban version), but this is subjective on keeping this or returning it and keeping the CHPT3 instead.

    Also on a separate subject buyers, I brought a full Chinese titanium Brompton for my other half last month and should be here at the beginning of next week too. It’s going to be interesting as the weight for a 5 speed, titanium frame and parts aside from the seatpost and handlebars where it is carbon.

    The bike is weight apparently is 7.95kg (with no mudguard or pedals).

    Will take some proper pictures and do a show and tell when it arrives.
