The Ultimate Guide to Folding Your Brompton Electric Bicycle

Navigating the urban landscape has never been more stylish or practical, thanks to the innovative design of the Brompton Electric bike. Whether you're a daily commuter or an occasional rider, mastering the fold of your Brompton Electric can save you space and make transportation a breeze. Follow our step-by-step guide, and you'll be folding your Brompton like a pro in no time!

Step 1: Preparation
Before folding your Brompton Electric, ensure it's switched off and the battery is removed. Stand on the left side of the bike, apply the brakes, and engage the parking lock if your model has one.

Step 2: Lower the Saddle
Push the saddle down. This not only makes it easier to handle the bike but also helps stabilize it when folded.

Step 3: Fold the Pedals
Fold the left pedal by pressing the pedal inward towards the crank arm where it’s mounted, then rotate it upward. The right pedal does not fold on most Brompton models.

Step 4: Fold the Rear Wheel
Lift the rear frame's suspension block slightly and guide the rear wheel underneath the main frame, ensuring it rests securely against the bike's stopper.

Step 5: Secure the Front Wheel
Swing the front wheel to the left while simultaneously guiding the handlebars into a vertical alignment. Make sure the wheel is straight and not turned.

Step 6: Lower the Handlebars
Unlock the handlebar catch, then carefully lower the handlebars down alongside the front wheel. Ensure the controls and your Brompton's electric lights are not under strain or folding awkwardly.

Step 7: Fold the Frame
Pull the main frame latch upwards, allowing the bike to fold in half. Make sure that the chain and crank are on the outside, and the wheels are aligned with each other.

Step 8: Final Adjustments
Rotate the saddle forward so that it locks the bike into its folded position, reassuring the security of the fold.

Et voilà! Your Brompton Electric bike is now neatly folded and ready to be carried, stowed away, or conveniently stored at home or work.

Should you encounter any hiccups when folding your Brompton Electric, consult your user manual or contact a certified Brompton dealer for assistance.

Remember, regular practice can make the folding process second nature. Now, you're all set to enjoy the compact convenience and efficient travel that Brompton Electric bikes are known for.
