Rent a Brompton? Is there such a thing? Brompton Experiences, a Singapore Brompton rental service offers brand new 2020 models for avid PCN cyclists. Cycling has no doubt become a popular activity during this pandemic and its great way to exercise and distress as you discover Singapore's unique network of Park Connectors.
There is more than meets the eye when it comes to the benefits of renting a Brompton. Here are some reasons why Renting is a good idea.
1) Matching the right model to your profile
Renting allows you to get a hands-on experience of Brompton before purchase. By doing so, you would be able to determine which model suits your profile best before you make the purchase.
At a glance, the S model looks more attractive than the M model. Yet after a 2-hour ride, some would feel that the ride profile is too low and would prefer a more relaxed riding stance, via the M bar. It creates a more upright position that reduces the amount of leaning forward, saving your lower back and wrists from sore aches. Unlike other folding bicycles the Brompton's handle bar cannot be adjusted and therefore selecting the right height is important.
2) Save on premiums
Renting a Brompton allows you to establish the need for it in your lifestyle, ensuring that it is capable of meeting your needs.
We have come across many potential owners who insist that the 6 speed Brompton is a must for their purchase but are not aware of the weight difference between the 6 speed and 2 speed Brompton due largely to the hub gear system that is used. Understanding your regular ride pattern and terrain also helps in selecting appropriate gears. By renting you can test 2, 3 and 6 speed models and have first hand experience on a proper ride.
Is the extra cost and weight penalty of a 6 speed Brompton a necessity? Especially when you can accomplish your ride with a 2-speed Brompton. Rent a Brompton before you purchase, and you can save on hefty premiums.
Also in view of the limited availability of units, renting allows you to still have that ideal ride without being forced to pay high premiums on new or pre owned units.
5) Variety of models
We have a variety of models in our fleet for you to rent from. For our long-term rentals, you can interchange models anytime during the rental period. Spice things up and showcase a different model every time you ride. A different experience awaits with every new model.
The Brompton Experience Rental service is a new initiative by High Achievers as a means to pivot on our experience in outdoor adventure training. This new service is managed by a group of Brompton Enthusiasts.
We aim to provide valuable experience for soon to be owners and allowing the curious to really understand what differentiates this bicycle from others. To facilitate your next cycling adventure write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text us at wa.me/6589257912

They say that “Once one learns how to ride a bike, they can never forget it because it gets stored within the procedural memory”. Whist that is often true, it is also the case that with prolonged periods of abstinence can result in the loss of confidence and stability! Find out more as we share with you our cycling tips!
