Did you convert a normal Brompton or buy a factory electric model?
Is it reliable?
I'm thinking of buying
an electric conversion kit.
Bromptons are great little machines. I think it would be a crime to electrify one, and would sort of defeat the point of owning such a primo folding bike. My 2 cents obviously.
This year I bought a halfway decent 20" folding bike (aluminum frame, 8-speed) for approx US$300. Not a Brompton, but it's only getting occasional use (and i have 3 other non-folding bikes
). I had a cheap
conventional e-bike a few years ago, but it was a beast and too heavy.
If you're keen on having a folding electric bike, why not electrify a less expensive one? You could do that for well under a grand, and if you decide you love it, then you might consider an e-brompton.
