Brompton releases stunning Nine Streets Edition bike

Two-tone lacquer fade is hand painted meaning no two bikes are the same

Brompton Bicycle has released a special edition Nine Streets design of its popular folding bike which will see a unique paint scheme for every frame. 

The Nine Streets Edition was originally unveiled last year to mark the opening of the Brompton Junction, a shop selling Brompton bikes and accessories, in the trendy 9 Straatjes (Dutch for Nine Streets) district of Amsterdam.

Brompton has now decided to release a limited amount of these bikes, debuting a new fade finish paint scheme, a product of moving its painting operation in-house to its distribution factory in West London.

The paint scheme will take inspiration from the photogenic canal-side neighbourhood of the same name in Amsterdam with a two-tone coat of red and blue lacquer which is hand sprayed. This personal process means that each bike will have a slightly different finish, making each bike unique.

A select number of the bikes have now been made available, with the Nine Streets S2L edition – Brompton's two-speed setup with S type handlebar – retailing for £1,255.

The six-speed Nine Streets M6L and S6L versions will be on sale slightly higher at £1,375.

Like all standard Bromptons, the bikes will be fitted with full front and rear mudguards along with a front luggage mount and Shimano hub dynamo lights.

Since its creation in 1975, Brompton has created over 500,000 bikes from its London-based factory with 45,000 manufactured so far in 2018.
