How do I fold my Brompton?

Brompton's clever design means that the bike can be easily folded in under 20 seconds. Here's how in seven simple steps.

Step 1.

Release the rear frame clip and lift the bike, allowing the rear wheel to swing under the frame.


Step 2

Unscrew the hinge clamp on the main frame and grip the handlebar support.

Step 3

Fold the front half of the bike back on itself and hook onto the frame. 

Step 4

Undo the lever allowing the saddle to drop down. Then tighten the lever back up.


Step 5

Undo the hinge clamp and let the handlebars drop into position on the outside of the front wheel.

Step 6

Rotate the crank so the right hand pedal touches the front wheel.

Step 7

Press the pedal latch and fold the pedal over.



Your Brompton bike is now folded. Walk away like it isn't a big deal.
