Noticed these and wondered if they would fit the brompton.

If they are a standard thread then I am sure they would.

We have these on our electric tandem. http://www.wiggle.co.uk/mks-espirit-ezy-superior-removable-pedals/ I think they are very good.

I believe Brompton pedals are the standard thread.

I got through about 3 sets of cheap folding pedals (not those ones, but a similar design) on my folding BSO before it died of old age at about 1200miles.  YMMV.


I've used Wellgo QRD removable pedals on my Brompton, so I can  a) have a SPD pedal that doesn't stick out  and  b) van switch to flats easily.  The MKS ones are a popular alternative.
