Brompton Service & Repair

If you own a Brompton bicycle, you already know how precisely it is designed to work around its trademark compact fold. Tuning and repairing Bromptons requires a high level of expertise, and keen sensitivity to its unique design and specificity of the parts. 

There are not many shops that sell Bromptons in Chicago, and none that have the level and depth of experience our mechanics have with repairing Bromptons. Cosmic Bikes mechanics have worked on hundreds of Bromptons, both new and old, and are familiar with typical problems that arise, and skilled at addressing more unusual issues as well.
