Its name pays tribute to their launch year (1975), and it has simple three-speed gearing with a more basic M-type handlebar compared to their M6L, S2L and S6L models. It weighs in at approximately 11.6kg, and there are the same rack and mudguard mounts that you get on other Bromptons. Tyres are the reliable Schwalbe Marathon Racers, and there are front and rear reflectors as standard. Unlike higher specced Bromptons you can't fold the pedals in on the B75, but the frame folding mechanism works the same.

To emphasise the affordability of commuting by Brompton rather than public transport, the brand make the comparison with the £158 per month London travelcard that covers Zones 1 to 3. The £30 a month deal also makes it less than six pints of craft beer (in that there London, anyway), an average gym membership or three takeaway pizzas. Brompton, therefore, tout the B75 as "a perfect introduction to city cycling", aiming it squarely at those who are new to cycle commuting. 

The B75 comes in just the one Water Blue colourway, and is available to order right away. Head over to Brompton's website for more info and buying options. 

Arriving at in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
