The comments section of the Brooks Online Shop has been bombarded for some time by incredulous (but patient) Brompton enthusiasts querying for a date when a set of 100mm Slender Grips for use with the famous M-Series handlebar will be available.
Brompting Brompton Enthusiasts, that day has come.
If you’re keen on picking up glossy material issuing forth from one of the world’s venerable publishing houses specializing in cycling press, then you may have likely already come across our new ad campaign that focuses on the Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle journey.
While shooting this campaign, we made a video that will be released very soon chronicling the path taken by former Brooks employee Andrew Hunter and his friend Adam Ferguson as they made their way from Cornwall to Caithness.
During this adventure we managed to inconvenience Adam, by way of his unpacking, so that we were able to shoot a short video to explain the details of our new pannier bags and how they function.
If you would like to be notified the moment the full-length video of their journey is released, please register for updates at www.enjoyeverymile.com.
Soon to be your stout companion through thick and thin – The Brooks 21 Multi Tool
In the past, browsing through the maintenance department of the Brooks Online Shop was a brief excursion to procure a standard spanner or perhaps a tin of Proofide. Now a stop by this humble section of the website is about to get much more interesting…
We mentioned in a post recently how, after the past few years of Researching and Developing, our Brooks line of bags for cycling with was beginning to approach a state of completion. We now have a range of pieces produced in England and Italy, running the gamut from spacious to slimline, designed for and by cyclists, yet which do not require the tandem accessory of bicycle to make aesthetic sense.
As most will know, there are Brooks rucksacks and holdalls built with a specially treated and extremely tough canvas, but in most cases (no pun intended) our bags are made using leather of the same grade we take for our saddles.
