Brompton bikes

The Brompton bike range began life in the South Kensington flat of Andrew Ritchie, in 1975. The London-based marque is often considered the manufacturer of the best folding bikes and continues to make its home in the capital city, having invested two million pounds in a move to its new home in Greenford.

The decision to maintain a base in London was motivated in part by a desire to maintain the expertise of the brazers - each who have been trained over a period of eighteen months to hand join the components of a Brompton frame to be strong and resilient for the city environment.
