Drawing on our previous three collaborations with David Millar of CHPT3, we turn to page 4 and the horizon broadens. A bike that originated as a city commuter and became a daily workhorse for David, a former pro-cyclist, is now embraced by a community who see beyond simply departing from point A and arriving at point B.
A fast and light wheelset
Designed and tested to stand up to daily use in the city, in all weathers. On superb tan-walled Schwalbe One tyres for optimal grip and maximum style. With weight-saving Tubilito innertubes.
Superlight, compact gearing system
The Brompton 4-speed system* for rapid urban acceleration and nimble climbing ability. With a 60-gram derailleur, meticulously engineered to fit inside the narrow fold. *patent pending
fi’zi:k Terra Argo X5 saddle
We chose this gravel-specific saddle for the superb vibration absorption, and the short nose. This gives you a stable, planted position. You can shift further forward too– the ergonomic design minimises pressure on any sensitive parts. Cleverly thought-out drainage channels make it brilliant for wet-weather riding.
Brompton x CHPT3 Frame Pouch
Your CHPT3 comes with a limited-edition Frame Pouch Bag. It’s inspired by how the community use their Brompton x CHPT3 bikes - moving fast around the city, racing, heading out on long weekend rides. It’s perfectly sized for a spare tube and tools. Just like the bike, it’s minimalist, practical and brilliantly durable. In abrasion resistant Hypalon fabric with a welded, waterproof construction.
Made for Speed
Handbuilt titanium and steel frame. All the practicality of a Brompton in a lightweight and performance oriented form. More than 1.5kg lighter than the original bike.
Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.
Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
