The bottom bracket, or “BB”, is the cartridge bearing/spindle unit that your right hand crank and left-hard crank arm fasten to. In recent months, Brompton Bicycle has received reports of these spindles breaking. Though there were very few reports of this occurrence, Brompton have taken the news seriously and announced a voluntary recall of most bikes made between April 2014 and May 2017. They are asking owners to take their bikes to Brompton dealers for a free repair. To CONFIRM if your Brompton folder is subject to the recall, FIRST, check here on the Brompton website.
