Brompton S1E Single-Speed Folding Bike Review
The bikes offered by Brompton boasts a long life and are known as the most reliable products that barely suffer from depreciation after a while. The Brompton S1E Single-Speed Folding Bike is a proud addition to this brand that is well known amongst bike enthusiasts for riding luxury combined with comfort and style.
Unlike other bikes, this bike uses 16 inch wheels instead of the 20 inch, which makes it a lighter version of folding bikes. With smaller and larger sizes there are compromises that have to be made but Brompton seems to provide its very own creative solutions to deal with the situation. With the hefty price that it comes at, this luxury ride has a lot to offer and very little to break your heart. Smaller sizes often cause complications in riding and folding but with a design and convenience like Brompton’s, there is no doubt that they have made their bikes the most compact ones available. It will carry you luggage as it can be wheeled as a shopping cart and this function is a great addition. Use it as medium of transportation or carry in a bus or to the supermarkets in a folded position.
Brompton has many features to offer, one of which includes self-customized bike options. You can customize the handlebar as you like, play around with the gears, gear ratio, fix up the mudguard the way you want it with a rack, frame material and its color, adjust the saddle height as you want it with a lot more like suspension, tyre choice and even lighting.
The folding and unfolding process may be a bit more complicated compared to the various 20 inch wheel bikes available on the market. However, if you compare it to the 16 inch bikes offered by Brompton, the process will seem a lot more effortless. Simply follow all the instructions in the videos available and you’ll do just fine.
With the frame made out of steel, the bike is a stiffer and stronger version of Brompton bikes. The bike may require a higher force when pedaling but its super easy to maneuver. It is a perfect fit for many and continues to become a favorite for those who are looking forward to smoother rides and comfortable experiences throughout.
