  • Hi,

    I bought this bike from a forum member before lockdown with grand plans to commute out to a client in Wembley. Suffice to say that once the client work had finished and Covid hit, it didn't get a lot of use. Oh yeah, the small matter of the chance to buy a CHPT3 one probably didn't help either.

    Anyway, now up for sale as I'm leaving the UK and don't really need 2 folding bikes.

    Neat and tidy and the serial puts it at 2008 if I'm reading it right. Brooks B17, Brooks grips and an Ortlieb waterproof bag complete the deal. The rest is stock I think. The odd paint chip / scratch here and there.

    I haven't huge amounts of time so collection only from N7. Obviously happy to arrange a test ride, preference given to anyone that can meet over the next couple of days. I've left this all a bit late as you can tell.

    Dibs followed by a PM to arrange is fine. Cheers.

    Price: SOLD £500

  • Dibs, PM’ed

  • 2nd dibs

  • Second dibs

    Edit: lol. Guess I'm 3rd then

  • Absolute bargain. Was going to list my Black Edition M2l for £900 on eBay this week...

  • I got a good deal from the original seller so passing it on.

  • Definitely not complaining - fair play for passing it on.

  • The forum has been such a great resource over the years that I feel duty bound. Cheers for the kind words.

  • Just a quick note to say I'm currently arranging a meeting with the first person that called dibs. I'll work my way down the list if it turns out the bike isn't for them. Cheers all.

  • 4th dibs...

  • I'd be interested in buying one of the little pouches form the O-bag, if the eventual buyer doesn't want both

  • Ever hopeful 5th dibs

  • Unlikely 6th dibs...

  • 7th dibs, if any of the above fail. Just down the road too 👍

  • Can I join? 8th dibs, as I crashed the other day + broke my folder hitting a pothole.

  • That's an absolute stunner of a bargain - if I was down in London I'd have been all over this! GLWS!

  • Oh no. Sorry to hear that.

  • First 'dibser' is coming round tomorrow to check out the bike. Will update the thread afterwards. Thanks all.

  • No worries. Wasn't paying attention. Then bang - front rim has a ding, rear wheel totalled and a couple of dents/maybe creases which look suspicious. Now on hastily-borrowed beater. Reminds me - must report.

  • Hi folks, the Brompton is now sold. Hopefully the new owner gets loads of miles and smiles out of it. Cheers for all the interest. Oddly, it's the bike I've had for the shortest period but is the one I was most reluctant to part with.

  • My Brompton lust has hit fever pitch. But good on you for the great deal for the forum, and hope the new owner loves it

  • Cheers! Hope so too.

    I was a Brompton sceptic but it really has been a game changer for me.

  • I’ve completely upgraded this bike and made a video about it. I hope you enjoy :)


  • Shiiiiit this was my bike that I sold to the original poster. Totally regretted selling it. If I’d spotted this at the time I so would have bought it back. Looking forward to watching that vid!

  • That's pretty damn good !
