As with all Brompton bikes these are handmade but the limited Nine Streets bikes are also hand painted. The two tone red and blue is lacquered manually meaning no two bikes are the same adding some extra exclusivity.

The two tone fusion colourway is inspired by Amsterdam's 9 Straatjesis. This street is known for its trendy shops and creative influences around the canal district of Amsterdam.
Brompton's home city is London where its inventor Andrew Ritchie first made the Brompton in 1975. It has since made over 500,000 bikes with 45,000 of those being made in 2018.
Since 2003 Brompton has seen cycling increase by 91 per cent. It now sells bikes to 44 countries around the world and over 80 per cent of production is exported from the UK.

Brompton say its bikes are the perfect bikes for the city. With its bike ability to fold down to a third of its size and weighing around 11kg for the standard model and a little over 13kg for the electric version. This it says means the Brompton is suitable to take on all forms of transport.
