Product Description

Details

Brompton M6L Black Edition 2017

Black Edition means the bars, stem, and seatpost are black rather than the usual silver to create an even more distinctive version of this most famous folder.

To make it stand out even more, as well as the all-black version, you can opt for your Black Edition bike to come with a Lagoon Blue, Lime Green or Orange main frame.

Colour aside, this bike is a regular Brompton M6L

Brompton M6L

  • 'M' means that this is an M-Type Brompton folding bike. This means that it has Brompton's U-shaped bars, which bestow a comfortable upright position.
  • For 2017, the M handlebars are now butted aluminium to make them stronger and stiffer, and come fitted with longer grips for extra comfort
  • '6' refers to its BWR [Brompton Wide Range] gearing which combines a 3-speed hub gear with a simple derailleur which moves the chain between two cogs to give you a decent range of 6 evenly-spaced gears.
  • 'L' is Brompton code for coming ready fitted with mudguards.
  • Every Brompton now comes with a simple Saddle Height Insert which automatically resets the seatpin at the correct height whenever you unfold the bike to ride it.

Continual Evolution
Brompton's continued growth and success is based on starting with a great idea - what is generally considered the best folding bike design - and then continually developing it as witnessed with this Black Edition Brompton.

For 2017, Brompton are upgrading the ergonomics of every bike as follows

  • More intuitive underbar gear shifters
  • Its new lock-on grips are lighter weight and they'll never slip out of position
  • Saddle light - a special mount at the top of the seatpost makes a perfect perch for a USB-rechargeable Cat Eye LED rear light
  • Mounted on the brake lever, the sweet-toned brass bell is always within easy reach
  • You can mount the bell on the right or LH lever, whichever is more convenient

'Brompton Black Edition
We are excited to launch a new take on the classic Brompton finish: The Black Edition. For the first time, the Black Edition bikes will feature a number of key components in black rather than the usual silver, and have been developed after years of interest in the possibility of an all-black Brompton.

'City life at night was the inspiration behind the Black Edition, we were keen to try a sleek matt black Brompton mixed with pops of bright colour, as well as the full black effect.'
