Junction News - Winter 2019 - July 04

Frosty starts, icy fingers and toes until your blood gets pumping, and grey skies that make you wish you were going home to a comfy chair, hot drink, cozy blanket and a chance to reflect back on the year thus far...

Welcome to Winter!

For those of us who are all-weather riders, winter is a season to be embraced. With the right gear, cold mornings change from freezing to invigorating and nearly all your insta pics feature #wymtm.

For those of us who aren't so inspired to brave the elements, having a bike that you can so easily fold up and take with you on a train, tram, bus or motor vehicle is a real blessing. We get to enjoy a ride when the bright winter sun decides to shine, but there's always an easy Plan B when the clouds roll in. #multimodal #FTW!

No matter what the weather's like, you'll always enjoy a warm reception at Brompton Junction so if you're out enjoying a ride, don't forget to call in and see what we're up to.

Brompton Logo Collection

Keep warm on or off your bike with the 2019 Brompton "Logo Collection" of apparel in store now. Knitted fingerless gloves and knitted beanies are sooo cozy - perfect to keep you warm at the footy or while you perch on the edge of that cold bench seat waiting for your train to arrive.

We still have some stock available of the full Brompton Glove (Sm, Med, XL), but supply is limited so get in quick to grab a pair before they're all gone.

Brompton x CHPT3

Recently we've hosted David Millar (Scottish ex-pro cyclist, anti-doping campaigner, and co-creater of the CHTP3 brand) in store to launch the Brompton x CHPT3. This year introduced the second version of this highly sought-after special edition Brompton, so it was certainly no surprise when they sold very quickly. If you haven't seen one 'in the flesh' yet, you should probably pop in ASAP to see the one we have on loan - while it's still around! #CHPT3xBROMPTON

Gold Edition Brompton Bikes

Also arriving at the start of June were the Gold Edition Bromptons. Celebrating good fortune, prosperity, and Brompton's 20th anniversary of trading in Asia the Gold Edition features a gold coloured main frame, custom serial number plate, a golden toolkit and a Brooks B17 leather saddle. Only 1,000 have been made, and of these only a handful have come to Australia.
