A Brompton that a die hard roadie would consider

BROMPTON CHPT3 Limited edition

The Brompton design team worked closely with David Millar to put together an aesthetic that would encourage road cyclists to think about Brompton.

A stripped back look; no mudguards or luggage. Attention to detail; premium grips and saddle. Never forgetting to keep everything lightweight; black titanium rear frame and forks, kojak tyres.

A performance Brompton for the city.

Incorporating painted titanium rear frame and front fork (the first time for Brompton), along with a number of premium touch points, this bike is designed to attract road cyclists who value the weight saving of titanium as well as the attention to detail across the other touch points that make it feel special and separate from the crowd.

David Millar: “I’d never thought of myself a Brompton rider, as cyclists we tend to pigeon hole ourselves, and I am a racing cyclist.  A lunch spent next to Will Butler-Adams changed that, he explained to me the philosophy, ethics and engineering of Brompton and I was hook, line and sinker.  I’d always treated my road bikes as tools, yet tools specifically designed for training and racing, my Brompton on the other hand has become a much more useful tool, a bike that serves to get me from place to place with zero hassle, and, more often than not, lots of fun.  I did have one concession, I wanted the CHPT3 Brompton to strike more of a resemblance to a BMX than a race bike, we have stripped it down and made it a little more aggressive and performance led than the classic Brompton.”

The Chpt 3 edition comes with a sparkle fire red front frame, sparkle grey main frame and Titanium fork and rear frame in Black. All bikes have S type handlebars with no mudguards, with a choice of 2 or 6 speed gearing. For first time red Renthal grips and special red cambium saddles will be used.

The Brompton Chpt 3 edition bike is limited to a 500 manufacturing run with the potential for a second run if there is enough demand.

Velorution acquire Fitzrovia Bicycles

velorution - Thu, 2017-05-04 10:42

Jonathan Cole our managing director comments, "We are really excited to welcome Fitzrovia Bicycles to the Velorution family with our acquisition of certain assets of this  iconic bike store" The acquisition was made after Fitzrovia based in New Cavendish street reached the end of their current lease.
Spiralling rents and rates in the area made it impossible for the store, which had a very heavy focus on workshop services and bike building to continue trading.

"When Fitzrovia approached us we made a very quick decision to move all their retail and  workshop facilities to our Great Portland St locations less than 500 metres away so that customers could continue to enjoy the Fitzrovia customer experience uninterrupted."

Further information is available on request from info@velorution.com 0207 148 5572
