Join us for the inaugural session of Shop Talk, an informal monthly series, during which we’ll go into a selected topic at some depth in a relaxed, social atmosphere.
This month’s focus is Brompton, our favorite folding bike. Everyone’s welcome, whether you’re a Brompton owner, Brompton curious, or even if you’ve never heard of Bromptons, but are perhaps intrigued by supremely practical engineering wonders.
This evening’s topics will include demonstration of the Brompton’s unique fold, and an explanation of its benefits and best applications. We’ll go over and help make sense the various customization options. If you’re Brompton curious, you’ll have a chance to chat with some current Brompton owners about their experiences.
Current Brompton Owners can take part in a free Brompton Maintenance demonstration, including wheel removel, flat repair and addressing common shifting problems. We will use one of our demo Bromptons, but feel free to bring your own, along with any questions you may have.
We’ll also give you a sneak peek at (and a chance to pre-order!) the all-new, semi-custom “Blue Line” Brompton, a great way to enhance your multi-modal commute, and show your NW Side colors.
For those interested in a more in-depth Brompton experience, we’ll screen “The History of Brompton Bicycle”, a documentary about the bike’s intrepid inventor and engineer Andrew Ritchie.
This event is free. Beer from Lake Effect Brewery and light snack will be on hand, but feel free to BYO.
