What is the difference between the short and long wheel base?


The short wheelbase Brompton was discontinued in 2004. 

This change happened because the hinge was improved to a stronger joining method known as lug brazing. This is where the tube is brazed inside the hinge plate. This meant that the frame also became slightly stiffer. The previous hinges were butted, meaning the tube was brazed up against the hinge.

The short wheelbase Brompton is 1015mm. The long-wheelbase Brompton is 1045mm.
