Brompton Rear Shock Test Ride Compilation


The most easy upgrade for brompton besides hinge clamp should be the rear shock. Brompton stock suspension block has the reputation of "too soft", even with the "hard" block. With all these colourful choices of after market suspensions and all those stiffness modes to select, which one better suits your need? It all depends on your riding preference, how fast you want to go, how much is your weight and the general road condition of your rides. Oh, don't forget the weight of this component and the all important "BLING" factor. :)

Here are some test videos FYI. Do take into account the load (rider's weight) and road conditions.
