Brompton Electric H2L review
Since starting the Brompton Electric Upgrades programme in 2021, Brompton has received reports of issues with the mudguard on some Electric bikes – occurring on bikes that have not been fitted with the upgrade.
If an object of a certain size becomes trapped between the bike’s mudguard stay and tyre, it can result in the mudguard getting caught on the tyre, and the bike’s wheel rotation becoming inhibited or stopping suddenly.
Brompton has begun an official recall programme to repair all affected bikes, which includes a new mudguard stay that increases the space between the mudguard and tyre, as well as a new battery catch to reduce movement between the battery and bike.
Brompton electric bike owners should visit the Brompton website and follow the steps to get the updates.
