Why Owning a Brompton Will Change Your Life
As the running of cars and price of public transport become more expensive, people are desperate to reduce the cost of their commutes. Cycling to work isn’t exactly a new concept, however, there have always been some glaring complications. Brompton have invented a bike to tackle any issues you might have.
Besides from being an incredibly well-made product, Brompton bikes are incredibly convenient for the sole reason of them being able to fold and reduce their form factor into a locked package, a little larger than its wheels. This may not come as a surprise to you if you’re aware of the Brand. However, it is a potential revelation if you’ve only just learnt this.
Brompton bikes are designed to be folded into a compact shape to make transporting and storing them that much easier. Any city commuter knows the difficulty and awkwardness, in trying to fit a full size bike onto a train, let alone the underground.
Despite their smaller size, there is no compromise in terms of comfort. That means you won’t be hunched over, looking like you’re riding a children’s bike!
Brompton offer four different handlebar options as well as an easy adjustable seat. It’s identical to how you’d ride any other bike, no bad backs or soreness from awkward positioning!
Built to Last
Brompton bikes are a premium brand and are built to last. Each Brompton bike is handcrafted in London by a team of talent staff. You can rest assured knowing you’re getting a folding bike that has had no detail overlooked and that could last a lifetime with the correct maintenance.
Additionally, the designers at Brompton are incredibly intelligent and have undergone a very meticulous process in designing these folding mechanisms. They know that a folding system such as this will be under huge amounts of stress. They’ve tested for this and, using premium materials and processes, have made a product that can withstand whatever you throw at it!
Electric or Non-Electric?
And if you want to make it a relly easy journey into work, why not think about having an electric Brompton? Having sold the non-electric Brompton for many years, we were only too keen to be one of the first in the UK to sign up to sell these fabulous British engineered Electric Brompton folding bikes too. They add exactly the right quality of product and uniqueness, combined with the following of interest and demand a small independent retailer needs to pull customers in.
The Safer Option
According to crime data, over 376,000 bicycles are stolen each year, which is roughly one every 90 seconds. With the majority of these taking place in large cities, it’s simply not enough to leave your bike chained to a rack outside the office.
This is where the Brompton Folding Bike really shines! It can easily be folded down and stored under your office desk! If you cannot afford to give up the leg space in your office, then the beautiful thing with these bikes is they can easily fit inside a cupboard or in a large locker. Which then gives you that extra layer of security.
Brompton have also taken into consideration the weight of their product. Anyone who’s tried to wheel a road or mountain bike knows the absolute struggle of doing so; but not with a Brompton. These bikes are made from lightweight components and can easily be picked up and manoeuvred with one hand!
The fact of the matter is that you can rack up some serious costs through driving or relying on temperamental public transport. What’s important to remember is that it costs nothing once you own the bike; you can use it as you please for free!
Here at Cycle Revival, we know how much of an investment a new bike can be, especially in these times. This is why we offer a 0% finance scheme on some makes. However, we also offer a Salary Sacrifice Scheme which could save you hundreds! Here’s some more info on our Bike Payment Schemes.
Folding bikes are by far the most versatile and handy bikes for general commutes. We have found that a little extra cash goes a long way. Avoid the cheap brands and look at the main players, then you’ll be fine. People often choose a less expensive bike, but within a few months may return to part exchange for a Brompton!
