Introduction to Bicycles that Fold
In order to understand what makes Brompton bicycles so unique, one must be familiar with folding bicycles in general. There are 3 primary categories of folding bikes:
1. Folding bikes with small wheels that fold in half
2. Folding bikes with small wheels that fold into thirds
3. Folding bikes that have large wheels that fold in half
Many of the folding bike brands on the market are small-wheel bikes that fold in half. Some are great bikes, but because of how their folding mechanism is designed they do not fold to be as compact as a Brompton.
