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

Please note: Product images may show alternative models. Make note of chosen option before checking out.

Distilling the fun, freedom and frolics of an electric bike into a short product description is hard work, if you can call copywriting 'hard work' that is! Throw in a Brompton's lightweight, portable and compact package and you've got a cyclist's nirvana, a copywriter's nightmare. 

In the 'Explore' setup, this Brompton C Line electric bike has 6 gears at the rider's disposal. Add in the electric assistance and this folder is one to cross the city, escape the city, fly up hills and feel the freedom of travelling and living by bike. The bike has a riding range of between 20 and 45 miles and once it is low on juice, 4 hours is all it takes to get back to 100%. When not being ridden the battery pack can be slung over a shoulder to make the entire package easier to carry. Once folded, the bike's footprint is around 64cm x 56cm x 27cm. 

The Brompton C Line Explore is available with either a High or Mid handlebar. The Mid handlebar, which for most riders provides an all-round, neutral position, is Brompton's classic handlebar shape. The High handlebar offers extra elevation for taller riders. Four colours are available, Gloss Black, Turkish Green, Black Lacquer and Flame Lacquer, with the latter two attracting a small price increase for their luxury paint finish.

Brompton bikes, both electric and non-electric, have recently undergone a small name change. The bikes themselves remain largely unchanged but if you would like to understand some more about it, our journal article is just a click away.
