The Brompton H3L 2013 Folding Bike. The Brompton range has been updated for 2013, they now come with a range of new components that have been manufactured in-house at Brompton, these updates include; New Brake Levers: these now have adjustable reach with improved grip, power and response, they look beautiful too! Wheels: The new rim is double-walled rather than single-walled, improving durability and performance. Handlebar Grips: Now black, with a smoother finish for a more comfortable ride. Brompton Tyres: Kevlar-lined for great durability as before, now all-black and with the Brompton logo to offer a sleeker look. Chain set; is now stiffer and stronger than ever before.
The H Type has been developed in response to requests from taller riders and from those wanting a markedly more upright riding position. The height of the grips from the ground has been raised by 60mm compared to the classic M Type; forward reach to the grips from the saddle increases by around 13mm. This additional height and reach has been achieved by spacing the handlebar hinge 30mm further away from the headset allowing the overall length of the support to be increased by 60mm. While this means that the hinge protrudes further from the bike than on other models, the highest point on the folded bike remains the saddle, so the H Type fits into all existing transportation bags and covers. Please note that images of the folded bikes are for illustrative purposes only and represent the colour but not the model.
