One would think that a company like Brompton that produces such a fine and expensive product would be up and up on all what one should do to look after such an investment. I had emailed them wanting to find out how to properly clean and polish the bike and what products I should use. I told them that I was concerned that perhaps some products on the market might be harmful to the paint finish. I honestly figured that they would give me some insight as to how to clean the bike properly and what products to use and what products to stay away from. This is all they could respond with.
Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately we have not tested any cleaners or polishes for our bikes so I cannot confirm a good product for you.
I am very sorry I couldn’t help further at this time.

I'm sorry, but that doesn't work for me at all. I have presented this same concern to all the car makers I have dealt with over the years and all have given me positive feed back. Brompton -- you have to do better than that. Maybe some of you might think this as a non necessary concern, but for me it is. You screw up the finish with an improper product and there goes your warranty. They couldn't even give me advice on the proper way to clean the blessed bike.
