Calgary Brompton sighting....

I spotted these two cool Bromptons while I was out grocery shopping on my Bike Friday NWT.

I chatted with the owners a bit...they've got 6 spd IGHs [Sturmey-Archer I assume] and a 2 speed Schlumpf BB/crank set for a 12 speed drivetrain. They also had dynohubs/lights.

It seems like I'm seeing more folders about town these days...
safe riding - Vik

I saw a blue brommie on the bow river pathway near Prince's Island this past Thursday, while on a Yuba Mundo trip to IKEA.
