The Brompton folding bike was invented in West London and is still built in West London today in their new factory. When Brompton asked if I would like to visit their factory, being the curious person I am I had to say yes. I was pretty impressed to see how much of the bike is actually made at the factory and how many custom parts go into making this bike. Brompton continually test and look for ways to improve their bike. This year they have produced their first e-bike version of the Brompton which I got the chance to take for a quick spin as the grand finale of my tour.
