Once you have purchased your new bike from us, it will be put into the build queue for one of our workshops. Your bike will be built and will undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) by one of our expert mechanics. A PDI is a checklist that the mechanic follows to confirm that all parts of your new bike are up to our high standards.

Next, your bike will be prepared for shipping. Padding is used on all the necessary areas and your bike is loaded into a sturdy cardboard bike box. All the necessary paperwork and accessories will be packed inside too. Most of our cardboard and packaging are recycled from incoming deliveries. Bikes are usually delivered by DPD within the UK.

In order to package your bike safely, you will need to do a small amount of assembly when it arrives. It can vary from bike to bike, but usually you’ll need to: fit the front wheel, install the handlebars and fit the pedals. Please note that not all bikes come with pedals - please check the specification on each bike, we’ll include it on there.

Product Description

Barbour was made for getting outdoors. So, the Special Edition Brompton bike is too. Spec’d for adventure with a 6-gear set-up for the city and beyond. 

Inspired by the beautiful stretch of shoreline near Barbour's base in South Shields, England the Barbour x Brompton Special Edition frame and forks are in an Amble Sands Gloss finish. The Brooks saddle in Silt Grey. A custom-serial plate pays homage to the landmark lighthouse. Edition-specific gold decals complement the natural tones.

A spontaneous weekend trip or travel in the city? The Barbour x Brompton collaboration bike allows you to bring everything you need. With a spacious 24-litre holdall and a compact Zip Pouch included. They were crafted by Barbour in their iconic fabrics and designed for a perfect fit on the Brompton.

The bike features a Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle Made for adventure. This Special Edition saddle uses natural rubber and recycled materials – which offer exceptional flex and all-weather performance. So you can enjoy long days in the saddle. Schwalbe Almotion multi-surface tyres handle long days of exploring. Wet or dry. Pavement or gravel. This pair adapt and roll smoothly. The V-Guard puncture protection and deep treads give you everything you need.

Levers, clips and a custom-made Lezyne pump shine in silver, a polished brass bell, designed for the Brompton handlebar round off this special edition bike.
