On the Brompton website is a series of good videos that show various aspects of caring for your Brompton folding bike.
One of the more difficult and non-intuitive operations is removing the rear wheel, usually to replace a punctured tube.
The video on the Brompton site steps through the process showing which tools are necessary.
There are also videos on folding and unfolding the bike, removing the front wheel, adjusting the 2-speed dérailleur and 3-speed internal hub, and several others.
If you own a Brompton or are thinking about purchasing one, it's worth checking out the videos.
Are you an avid lover of all things Brompton? Do you ever wonder how this marvelous little machine came to be? Wonder about the people behind it?
Well, here's your chance to learn all about one of the finest folding bikes made to date, The Brompton Bicycle, by David Henshaw, is now in its second edition, and we have it here at bikes@vienna! Priced at $24, the book is a fascinating look into the story of the Brompton, as well as a good overview of folding bikes through the years.
Our most popular family tandem has been the KidzTandem by Brown Cycles. The child is seated in the forward position and the adult controls the bike from the rear. Conversations are much easier making for a more fun ride. The adult can easily watch the child seated in front. Options for the front seat include a regular saddle for older kids and a child seat for toddlers.

We sell and repair single bikes, tandems, recumbents, and trailers. We want people to use a bike to have fun, to exercise for good health, to save money, and to protect the environment. Our bike shop offers high-quality cycling products and service, but what we really promote are values.

The store is, in fact, about midway between Church Street and Maple Avenue (Route 123), and is accessible from a broad, unnamed alley that runs between those two streets. Coming from Church Street, look for Terra Christa; we are located behind that store, with plenty of parking.
Our store is near mile 11.8 on the W&OD Trail. At Church Street, turn south. Cross Center Street and, on that next block, look to the left for the store tucked away in an alley.
