    Brompton Wheel Question

    I am just curious, do the Bromptons come with 28 or 32 spoke count wheels...

    Hi,
    the standard brompton front hubs are 28 hole
    the SON for Brompton is 28 hole
    the new rear hubs (2speed brompton, 3speed SA and SRAM) are 28 hole
    also from brompton you can get 36 hole rims for older hubs
    (I don't recall at the moment if it was the 5speed Sprinter).
    With 32 holes you need other hubs e.g. the pantour
