Why You Need a Brompton Folding Bike for Your Commute:

Last updated 6 years ago

It’s Wednesday morning around 7:30 am. In efforts to reduce your carbon footprint, you like to use public transportation to get from your point A to point B. Your morning commute probably begins with a refreshing bike ride a few blocks to your most convenient means of public transportation. If you’re in the San Francisco Bay and Palo Alto area, there’s a good chance the Caltrain or BART is one of those convenient choices.

Whatever your choice may be, we’ve all run into the issue of having to try to get your bike onto the actual train car. While the Caltrain and BART both offer bike racks in the car, there’s a good chance it’s not always open or easily accessible to you. What if the bike racks are full or it’s too crowded for you and your loyal companion to fit? Perhaps it’s about time you considered a folding bike, like Brompton, for example. Known for its speed and agility, it’s also made to fold easily and quickly into a completely portable package.  

Folding bikes like Brompton have a rigid frame and accurate alignment which makes them perfect for many different uses. Brompton bikes are known for their pristine construction with no two bikes being the same. Every bike is built by hand from the bottom up and Brompton offers three different styles to accommodate all types of riders. Depending on your wants and needs, there’s most certainly a Brompton bike that fits your lifestyle.  

Take a look at this video from Brompton demonstrating the folding process. You’ll be able to see how easy it is to pull out and fold, as well as, see how functional it remains for actually riding it.
