Brompton Custom Bike Builder

Brompton have halted taking orders so we are currently unable to provide any custom built bikes we will continue to update our stock as it becomes available

If you're unsure which model to go for, please feel free to visit the shop and take a look at our demo bikes.

We can guide you through the process of finding the right Brompton for your purposes, and may even have the bike you're after available here in-store.

We also carry a wide range of spares and accessories, ensuring you have everything you need to get the most out of your new Brompton bicycle.


  • All Brompton Bikes are given a free service after 4-6 weeks use (this is a back to base service)
Estimated Weight*:
(*Estimate only, excludes any luggage selections)
Model Type
There are four Members of the Brompton Family - the M,S,P and H Types - Designed for different Styles of riding distinguished by their handlebars.
Whatever other features you choose, you can always save about a kilogramme by Selecting a superlight bike in the frame and colour section.
Additional weight savings can be made by choosing an S-Type, a 1 or 2 speed and not adding mudguards etc.
A pump is standard on all bikes EXCEPT superlight models or Version E bikes.

M Type (+£990.00)
The gull-wing shape of the M Type's handlebars has been used on the Brompton since the outset: the grip height is 1015mm, which gives a fairly upright ride with excellent control, and there is scope for a little fore/aft adjustment. The M Type is the all-rounder in our range and remains the most popular Brompton.
S Type (+£990.00)
For many, this is the prettiest Brompton, It is the lightest of the Handle Bar options. The grips, at about 935mm from the ground, are appreciably lower than on the M type, and 50mm further forward, giving a sporty riding position which complements the positive feel of these bikes.
H Type (+£990.00)
The H Type has been developed in response to requests from taller riders and from those wanting a markedly more upright riding position. The height of the grips from the ground has been raised by 60mm compared to the classic M Type; forward reach to the grips from the saddle increases by around 13mm.
This additional height and reach has been achieved by spacing the handlebar hinge 30mm further away from the headset. While this means that the hinge protrudes further from the bike than on other models, the highest point on the folded bike remains the saddle, so the H Type fits into all existing transportation bags and covers.

Gearing Options
There are four Gearing options and each can be lowered or raised to suit your riding style.
The lowered gearing options make pedalling easier... but reducing your top speed.
The raised gearing option makes pedalling harder... but increasing your top speed.

2 spd (+£0.00)
One gear for hills & starting off, and one for cruising. Based on the unique Brompton derailleur system and an elegant new Brompton rear hub, this is the best gearing solution for lightness and portability. The direct drive, with near-perfect chain-alignment in either gear, is crisp and efficient.

3 spd (+£45.00)
The classic Sturmey-Archer hub, upgraded to an alloy shell, provides three well-spaced gears. These are fully enclosed for reliability, and control couldn't be simpler. A popular choice for everyday biking.

6 spd (+£135.00)
The combination of the new, highly-efficient Brompton Wide Range hub with Brompton's own derailleur system gives six evenly-spaced gears. Control with the two triggers is easy and, with its low transmission losses and wide range, this multi-gear system is the right choice for touring and for riding in hilly areas.
Mudguards & Rack
Version E (No Mudguards, No Rack, No Pump) (+£0.00)
The lightest, cheapest and prettiest version, but with obvious drawbacks: although the folded package stands up OK, it's not as stable as the other versions, and there's no pump fitted. Most importantly, of course, there is no protection from any water or dirt thrown up from the road.

Version L (Mudguards, No Rack) (+£65.00)
The most common package: all-weather riding without any extra weight.

Version R (Mudguards, Rear Rack) (+£135.00)
Version R provides the additional functionality of a luggage rack over the rear wheel. The die-cast aluminium rack comes with shock cords for tying items on, and a specially-designed Rack Sack is also available for use with it. The rear rack also allows the optional fitting of our Eazy Wheels, enabling the folded bike to be pulled along instead of carried.
Frame Colours and Options
For all steel Bromptons, you may select separate colours for the main frame and the extremities. These colours may be the same OR different EXCEPT for Raw Lacquer and Stardust Black which is not available in combination.
Superlight bikes, which include a range of titanium parts and lightweight compnentry, only one colour may be selected (for handlebar stem and main frame). Titanium parts are unpainted.

Seat Height
For an inside leg over 84cm/33" you should almost certainly fit an extended or telescopic seat pillar; the latter is best for an inside leg over 90cm/35", or for taller riders wishing to minimise the height of the folded bicycle.

Standard (+£0.00)
Standard: The standard seat pillar is the default option; its shorter length keeps the weight down and ensures the most compact folded package. A standard seat pillar should be fine for anyone with an inside leg measurement of 33"/840mm or less.
Extended (+£0.00)
Extended: 60mm (over 2 inches) longer than the standard seat pillar and a bit heavier, designed for those with longer legs and available at no extra charge. The main drawback is that the seat pillar protrudes correspondingly higher from the folded package.
Telescopic (+£47.50)
Telescopic: The telescopic seat pillar is designed for those with an inside leg greater than 35"/890mm or for taller riders wishing to minimise how far the seat pillar protrudes from the folded package. The telescopic seat pillar gives up to 175mm (almost 7 inches) more elevation yet, when lowered, the saddle projects only 20mm above the folded package.

Brompton Saddle  (+£0.00)
Brompton saddle now comes with a choice of Standard width or Wide.

Brooks B17 Special  (+£70.00)
Made for Brompton, this beautiful traditional saddle will give years of comfortable cycling, the leather molding with time to the rider. Finished with hand-hammered copper rivets, and fitted with the Brompton Pentaclip for step less adjustment.

Ergon GP1 Biokork (+£38.00)
The popular GP1, but with the feel and comfort of natural cork.

The unique qualities of cork means that it is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Cork's natural damping qualities also make it an ideal grip material, and its low density mean the resulting grip is a lot lighter. The BioKork grips use 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal which is certified for its ecologically sound production.

This ecological theme is continued throughout the rest of the grip. The inner core is plastic reinforced using natural fibre, which make up 40% of its mass. In place of mineral oil, the gel in the palm section of the grip is vegetable oil based. It is all a result of Ergon's "GreenLab" initiative.

Brooks Cambium Grips  (+£50.00)

Brooks GP1 Leather Grips (+£75.00)
Too much pressure on sensitive areas of the inner palm can lead to numb fingers, aching hands and forearms.

Schwalbe Marathon (+£25.00)
The Marathons are a little heavier than the Brompton tyres and the deep uni-directional tread, which gives superior grip, also means that they are not quite as free-running. But they are solidly-built, with both a Kevlar belt and a thicker sidewall to lower the risk of pinch-punctures. Like the Brompton tyres, they also come with reflective sidewalls, eliminating the need for reflectors on the wheel spokes.
Schwalbe Kojak (+£25.00)

Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tyre (+£50.00)
Punctures are a memory. The SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer.

These make removing tyres substantially easier and also incorporate 10 and 12mm spanners (patent-pending).
