Brompton News - Limited Number of Superlights Available Soon!

Sample photo of an M6LX Superlight Brompton in sage green.

If you follow news in the Brompton world, you'll know that for the past year or so the Superlight option has been unavailable, due to supply problems of the titanium rear frame unit. Well, Brompton is still having issues with supply and demand of those parts, but they have informed us that we can get a VERY LIMITED number of Superlight bikes in early 2013.

Many of you may already know, but for those who don't, let's cover the basics... a "Superlight" Brompton is built with a titanium front fork and rear frame in place of the standard steel parts. In addition, some other smaller parts are made of titanium, or are otherwise lighter versions of the standard parts.  All in all, it shaves about 2 pounds from the weight of the bike, which can be very nice indeed when you're carrying your trusty steed.

So, how many is a "limited number" you ask? Well, here at bikes@vienna we are going to be getting FOUR such bikes, all scheduled to arrive beginning in early January, the last bike arriving mid-February. Now is the time to talk to us if you've been wanting one of these bikes, as our window of opportunity to "design" the bikes to your specifications is brief. The deadline for the first bike on order is December 1st, so come on in and let's work out the design together!

There's no telling when we'll next be able to order Superlight bikes, so if you have any thought of getting one, you really should take advantage of this opportunity before it's gone.

Thanksgiving Day Ride!

It's that time of year again! Time for our annual Guilt Reduction Ride on Thanksgiving Day. Come and join us for a casual ride out to Herndon and back. We'll leave the shop about 9:00 am, so we can be back by 11:00, for those of you that have to prepare for dinner.

We'll have hot beverages ready before the ride, starting about 8:30. Please bring some canned goods or other non-perishable food for the CHO Food Drive. Reduce those feelings of guilt by burning off some calories and contributing to a good cause.

Below is a photo from a past Guilt Reduction Ride, with all of us posing at the Herndon Depot.

Send an email to if you think you'll be joining us, just so we have some idea of how many folks to expect.

Last year's ride. Let's get a bigger group out there this year!
