    Do all Brompton bikes still come with a pump?

    Heard it's only for non-Ti but is the inclusion of a pump standard around the world? Thanks.

    I have two S6L's, and they both come with pumps.
    FAIR is a four letter "F" word.

    mounts brazed on the rear section left side, holds quite securely ..

    they get the French Zefal company to make them for their [ Brompton] company..

    My understanding is that, currently, Superlights (titanium) and E models (no fenders) do not come with a pump. Non-Superlight L models (fenders) and R models (fenders and rear rack) come with a pump.

    Mine came with a pump. When I got home from the shop,I tossed it into a parts bin. I carry either a Topeak Road or Mini Morph,which is ten times the pump that POS is.

    The pump is pretty pathetic. On one trip, I deflated the tires about halfway since it would go as checked luggage. It took forever to pump up at the hotel. Because you're normally inflating it to reasonably high pressures, I bought a small hand pump with a fold out foot stand. Much better. I keep the included pump on the bike for looks because I'm vain....

    I've got a non-Ti (mine) and later a Ti (wife) - neither came with a pump.

    They charge one of the highest prices in the world - US$2150 for a base model with EZ wheels.

    Still it's always good to have a pump - crappy or not - for the very rare instance of a flat.

    SJS has all the Brompton spares .. Get the one made to go in the brazed on clips of the all steel model

    FWIW with my Bike Friday the punp goes into a pannier I have on the front rack .

    Like the Brompton they handle best IMO with some weight on the front wheel..


    Where I had the room I have a long stroke Frame pump , but sacrifices are made to make thing small

    along with your spare tube and tire removal tools maybe one of those CO2 inflators will work for you.

    You can also buy Presta valve tubes , if that works better.
    (no return spring in the valve core to push open with every stroke,
    just the air pressure increase over what's in there, closes the check-valve.)

    Where dynaryder fits that Topeak pump needs pictures , unless its also put in the front bag ..

    The question remains - is Singapore the only country in the world where the pump is excluded? I can't imagine the reason.

    So ask the seller What did you do with the pump that it says right here ..

    (present a document like an Email reply from Brompton as evidence )

    and demand the pump be coughed up .

    did they strip it to resell as an extra?. bring a Lawyer ..

    you know, in some parts of the english speaking world, that phrase may have an entirely different meaning.

    anyway, read the comments section

    first, the slow segue into thinking butt packs are acceptable followed by the inevitable slide into Depends.

    possible slogan: "not because you need it. simply because it's convenient."

    In a world where bike-riding would be the norm because it is the practical option, fanny packs would be king.

    In fact I'm going to head down to the nearest (local equivalent of a) Walmart and pick one up after work.
