Best Folding Bicycle Ever... least that's what we think. Broadway Bicycle School became a Brompton folding bicycle dealer on paper this past December. And the Bromptons have landed. We knew they were coming, but they still caught us a little by surprise. It was hard to believe that Brompton could deliver 3 custom folding bicycles, hand-made in West-London, England to our door in less than 5 weeks. But they did it. Exactly as promised. Amazing.

If you haven't seen a Brompton folding bicycle in person they are definitely worth taking a look. You will be impressed. And, if you come on by and check them out we can show you how easy they fold and how fun they are to ride! Not to mention how much sense a bicycle like this makes in Cambridge and Boston.

Think about it. A bicycle that, when folded, fits in a closet or next to the front door. No more worrying about where to store your bicycle overnight. Plus, when folded it is small enough to carry onto the commuter rail or the T to make for some trouble-free multi-modal commuting. What models do we have in stock? you might ask. Brompton does offer a selection of Key Models, but nothing is standard. Every Brompton is fully customizable.

Handlebars determine the Model type.

S Type

M Type

P Type

You can choose your drivetrain.
Options include:

Single gear

2-Speed with a derailleur

3-Speed Sturmey Archer Hub Gear


6-Speed combining a 3-Speed Sturmey Archer Hub Gear w/ a 2-Speed derailleur.

You have 14 color options for the frame and the extremities. And the option to choose a Superlight frame with a titanium rear triangle and fork to further drop the weight on an already lightweight folder.

Did we mention that the Brompton folds in seconds? Check out that video! Wow!

We currently have 3 models in the store at 2009 prices!

S1E in Black - $845 - A bare-bones single speed. Speedy, no fenders, no lights, no fuss.

M3L in Red - $1000 - A 3-Speed with Fenders and a more upright handlebar. A perfect fit for Cambridge with gearing options for exploring the hills and dales around Boston.


S6L-X in British Racing Green - $1984 - A 6-Speed with Fenders and the Superlight frame with the sleek S Type bar. A great choice for a longer commute, with the Superlight frame and 6-Speed drivetrain bringing it on the train or trekking across town is no problem!
