See the Dirty Brompton blog review of the Bromfoot2!
We LOVE the Brompton folding bike, and the folding pedal is especially cool, but for some reason, it’s always been a good bit smaller than the non-folding pedal, particularly on the original 2001-2011 version (27% smaller in fact!). Brompton improved it somewhat with their new 2012 version, but its still1/2 inch narrower than the fixed pedal (obscure EU regulations on bike lean angle are to blame here…)
So it feels a little unbalanced, unstable, and inefficient. And the original folding pedal, with its gently curving teeth, was also downright slippery underfoot!
More importantly, the folding pedal can scratch your frame when you fold it too far! Even with the latest version, the pedal can slip past the stop if it isn’t lined up with the crank when folding. And if you upgrade to the new folding pedal but have older cranks, it can easily fold past and strike your frame. Plus, the teeth on the new folding pedal are so sharp they can even cut your hands!
But we still LOVE the Brompton folding pedal, and we certainly didn’t want to replace it with an inferior folding pedal, a removable pedal, or god-forbid a NON-folding pedal!
So instead we created a simple extension attachment that bolts directly to your existing Brompton pedal. We call it BROMFOOT.
BROMFOOT installs easily to your folding pedal, using the existing reflector screw holes, and with all needed hardware included.
BROMFOOT makes your Brompton folding pedal longer, wider, and grippier (check out those extra TEETH!).
And it will never again scratch your frame (or your hands!)
35% INCREASE IN SIZE (original Bromfoot, 15% for Bromfoot2)
NO FRAME SCRATCHING
NO HAND CUTS
INSTALLS IN MINUTES WITH ONLY A SCREWDRIVER (BROMFOOT1) OR INCLUDED ALLEN WRENCH (BROMFOOT2)
Install BROMFOOT on your Brompton folding pedal and you will now have a pedal platform that is just as big as the non-folding pedal:
And your folding pedal will never again scratch your frame!
