New Bumble Bee from Brompton

 They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. 

Brompton has recently released a “Bumble Bee” Brompton C line (not sure I’ll get used to the new model codes). Brompton stopped the yellow paint a few years ago but now as been released again for the new line. Haven’t seen one in person to see if it’s the exact shade of yellow the legend is.   

From what I have seen the basic colour coordination is what I have been working on for many years with custom parts for the legend and perfected years ago. Black seat post, crank, wheel rims, spokes & brake callipers.

Looking forward to seeing one in the flesh and will give further thoughts afterwards. 

Remember folks, there is only one true legend…….

till the next ride, bee safe.....

Support your local bike shops

After the snow and rain of the last few months it was time for the legend to get a service. I have known Przemek for many years and has always been the legends fav surgeon  mechanic.

He has personally over seen pretty much ALL of the Legends major upgrades over the years and an all round top bloke. Always good banter whenever i visit.

All the years i have known him he has always expressed that he wanted his own bike shop, so finally he did it and Broda Cycle was born.

So the legend is all serviced and riding smooth as silk. Hopefully will get some rides in this year and see some of you folks too.


till the next ride, bee safe.....
