Brompton C Line Explore Folding Bike

Product description

Brompton C Line Explore Folding Bike

Designed for commuting, travel and storage.

Shops, restaurants, planes, trains, and buses are just some of the places you can take a Brompton. A Brompton folds down to about the size of a carry-on bag, small enough to fit under a desk or restaurant table and easy to carry. It can be stored under a bed or in a closet, or tucked into a corner or cubby. Need to catch a ride? A folded Brompton fits in the back seat of a car. With a Brompton, you can combine biking with other transportation and enjoy the health benefits of cycling while saving time and money on your commute.

Brompton C Line Explore

The Brompton C Line Explore is a favorite among folks with hilly commutes. It combines a 3-speed internal hub with a 2-speed derailleur system for 6 gearing options, ideal for longer rides and challenging hill climbs. The C Line Explore has two shifters: a 2-speed shifter on the left (same as the 2-speed Brompton) and a 3-speed shifter on the right (same as the 3-speed Brompton). It’s the recommended gearing setup for commuting or touring. Opt for -12% for even lower hill climbing gears. The handlebars you choose will determine your riding position. Depending on how upright of a ride you want, choose sporty low, classic mid, or high (the most upright) handlebars. The Brompton C Line Explore comes complete with an integrated bell and pump, and mudguards to keep your clothing clean and dry. Brompton’s ingenious pentaclip affords the saddle 4 inches of fore and aft adjustability allowing it to fit a range of riders. If you’re looking for the most versatile Brompton, a folding bike for long rides and challenging inclines that’s easy to carry and can be stored almost anywhere, with tons of luggage options, you’ll love zipping around town on a Brompton C Line Explore.
