Now in a fully updated 3rd edition for 2020, Brompton Bicycle tells the fascinating story behind one of the world’s most unusual and popular folding bikes. It also details how you can modify and convert your Brompton for such uses as child carrying and tackling hilly country and acts as a unique maintenance and repair manual, full of tips you won’t find in any standard bike repair book. In short, everything you need to enjoy this incredible bike to the full. The first two editions were hugely popular with the legions of Brompton fans, but the latest 232 page edition contains information on the new Brompton Electric, where Brompton may be heading in the future and of course the low-down on other new products and company developments.
