Come join us to celebrate the holidays.  While you're here, check out some special deals we'll be offering.  We won't be posting the details in advance, so you'll just have to come in and see for yourself... and grab a hot beverage and cookie while you're at it!

Bromptons for the Holidays!

Is there someone on your holiday shopping list who has been particularly good?  Have YOU been particularly good?  Well, what better reward than a Brompton bicycle or Brompton accessories for the holidays!  We've got a good selection of the bikes in stock, including three Super Light models (a M6L-X, P6L-X and S6L-X), in a number of colors and styles.  We've also got all of the Brompton bags in stock, including the fabulous new Game Bag, as well as the Nitto rear rack and the Brompton Toolkit. Or maybe someone on your list would like a DVD or book about the history of Brompton.  Or a spiffy new Carradice bag, perhaps in tweed?  So many great choices... hurry in before the big day!

Brompton 2015 - NEW COLORS!

For 2015, Brompton has introduced 6 new colors, the first major shake up in the color selection in several years.  The new choices look pretty sharp.  Take a look:

Berry Crush

Cherry Blossom

Lagoon Blue

Tempest Blue 
Lime Green

 Now, with the new colors coming in, some of the older colors have been discontinued, specifically Yellow, Sage Green, Claret, Cobalt Blue, Desert Sand, Hot Pink, Apple Green and Arctic Blue.  I'm sure some of those colors will be missed by some, but I think the new choices are really great.

As of mid-October, Brompton has been taking orders for 2015 bikes, with about a 4 week turnaround time.  Be the first on your block to have one of the new colors... come on in and place an order now.  We'll have some of the new colors in stock around the first of the year, and sample chips soon.

Holiday Gift Ideas - First Installment

Christmas is coming! So we're going to offer some gift suggestions and even some sale items as the big day approaches.

First up... for the Brompton owner on your list, why not get them one of the amazing new Game Bags from Brompton? Handcrafted by Chapman in NW England, they are beautifully made, stylish and practical. The perfect accessory for a fine British folding bike! We've got very limited quantities, so get them while we have them, as Brompton themselves are currently out of stock.

Studded tires for Bromptons!

They're here! The new Schwalbe Winter studded tires... in 16"/349mm - Brompton size! They'll also work on Bike Friday's Tikit and Greenspeed's GT series trikes, among other things. We have a limited number of them, and it looks like we got the last that were in the warehouse, so if you want some, come and get them!

You'll be amazed at how well studded tires work on ice and packed snow. It feels like your tires are just as connected to the road as on dry pavement.  Truly amazing!
