This year, iconic folding bike brand Brompton Bicycle celebrates its two decades in the region with the release of the ‘20 Years in Asia’ Gold Edition.
Launching with a run of just 1,000 bikes exclusively for Asia, only 80 of the bikes will be initially available in Singapore, making this a truly sought-after collectible for those with an appreciation of precision engineering and design in cycling.
Handmade in London since 1975, the innovative design of Brompton is renowned for its lightweight compact size, portability and extensive customisation options. For commuting, socialising, escaping and everything in between, Brompton has earned a loyal fanbase around the world who value the design and unique functionality of a Brompton Bicycle.
Each bike is hand brazed by skilled craftsman, trained for 18 months at the London factory, stamping their ‘signature’ on each part of the bike that they work on. The best of modern engineering is married with custom-designed components and traditional craftsmanship to create a hand-made, premium product.
Launched as part of the festive Lunar New Year celebrations, the golden lacquered frame of the 20th anniversary edition accentuates the sleek, impeccably crafted steel tubing, whilst striking black gloss components, including handlebar (M or H options), stem, seat post and 16” wheels stand out in contrast. The black Brooks B17 saddle is handcrafted in the UK with premium British Leather.
The bicycle is available as a 6-speed L-type and features a customised, numbered serial plate (i.e. 1/1000, 2/1000 etc.), decal and an owner’s certificate. Each bike also receives a golden toolkit, exclusive and available only with the special edition.
Will Butler-Adams, CEO, Brompton Bicycle says, “We wanted to share this milestone with our loyal customer-base in Asia. Seeing our bike being used and enjoyed in all parts of the world gives us a feeling that we are making a difference and hopefully bringing a bit of happiness, which is something we feel should be celebrated.”
Priced at $3,215 and available from the 18th January in time for Chinese New Year – the new ‘20 Years in Asia’ Gold Edition is available to pre-order online at sg.brompton.com or through official Brompton dealers B-spokes, Happy Owl Cycle or 808 Cycles.
