Product Description


Brompton M6L Nickel Edition '17

This bike's super-hard nickel-plated finish helps create a Brompton that is even better looking and more resistant to dings, scratches and the elements.

Why nickel?
Nickel isn't just about bestowing the Brompton a brilliant silvery finish. The 50 micron nickel plating is proven in deep sea drilling applications as being exceptionally corrosion resistant and hard wearing - perfect attributes for an all-weather bicycle frame.

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 Nickel Edition Brompton.

For 2017, Brompton have enhanced 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-mountable 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
