BLACK EDITION BROMPTONS ARE HERE!

THE NEW BLACK EDITION BROMPTONS  HAVE ARRIVED IN OUR SHOWROOM.

We have ordered most of them with the new Black Lacquer, a smokey finish that cloaks the steel, while still letting it peek through.  There is no way to get the full effect of this other than in person.  We’re here from 8 a.m to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10-4 Sat. and Sun.

We have Black Edition Bromptons in M, H and S bar configurations, so please do let us know what you’re looking for.

BROMPTON FLEA FOLDER FROLIC • Saturday, Dec. 16, 11 a.m.

Meet up with fellow Brompton riders and join us for a Flea Market Frolic on Saturday, December 16!  (under 8 mi. total, easy paced)

MEETS 11 a.m. sharp at Trophy Bikes (712 N. 2nd St.); we’ll cruise through Chinatown and then South Philly to the infamous PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET at the Bok Building.

We’ll GUARD your neatly-folded Bromptons while you shop for funky gift bargains at one of Philadelphia’s more unusual holiday happenings.  The PuNk RoCk FleA* features 100 vendors selling vintage and hand-made goods, clothing, LPs and crafty items.

bromptonsAfterward, we’ll spin north with our swag along the Delaware River and roll through two of Philadelphia’s newest riverfront pier-parks. FINISHES BACK AT TROPHY BIKES; optional after-beverage hangout at one of the fine local pubs nearby.

ALSO back at Trophy Bikes after the ride: special discounts for all Bromptoneers on any and all Brompton goods in stock. PLUS surprise gifts for the owners of the oldest and newest Bromptons on the ride (per serial numbers!).

NOTE: This is a Brompton-only ride, thanks for your cooperation; helmets and blinky lights, please. • RAIN/SNOW DATE 12/17; wear layers–we re-sked only for snow or rain!

(* Note: entry is $3, BUT the first 10 Bromptoneers to arrive at Trophy get free admission to the Punk Rock Flea Market.) 

 

ADVANCE NOTE: Closed on Thanksgiving and #GetOutside day (a.k.a. Black Friday)

One of the important things about bicycling is that you can choose your own path.  The current consumer tsunami that is Thanksgiving and Black Friday, as currently practiced, are, um, the opposite of that.  We are in total agreement with REI and other enlightened retailers that being closed on these days is a win for staff and citizens who can then get to hang with family and friends, or just ride off down the path alone for a while, even! Thus please note that we will be closed Nov. 23-24.

Cheers, and enjoy your calories – and the rides that burn them off.

BROMPTON “Bottom Bracket” voluntary RECALL! Effective ASAP. Please read!

bottom bracket location

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.  

TROPHY BIKES IS AUTHORIZED TO CHANGE OUT BOTTOM BRACKETS COVERED BY THE RECALL, at no cost to you. Please call us ( 215-592-1234)  to set an appointment. Your bike can be in and out same day in most cases. ALSO: If you feel your Brompton might need other work, be sure to tell us on the phone so we can reserve enough time to do that as well.

 

Thanks and we look forward to squaring away every Brompton we can, so the world’s best folder stays the most dependable folder as well.
