Brompton has just announced a series of events across the country and beyond called the Brompton Urban Challenge.  These are events to test your skill, creativity and ingenuity through a variety of fun and exciting challenges.

Folded on Newbury

Bromptons are encouraged, but all bikes are welcome.  More information and registration information is here on their web site.  It looks like great fun!

The closest to Boston will happen in New York City on Sunday, August 16.  I am planning on being there, and hope to see other Bromptoneers from the Boston area.

The elusive pre-owned Brompton WAS at Harris!

isP6L used side

Pre-owned Bromptons are about as common as snow balls in July (even after the seemingly-endless Boston winter of 2015).  Miraculously, we have had two in-house, and they quickly went to good homes!

They have standard 6-speed gearing for any terrain, fenders, rear rack, front luggage carrier block, Eazy wheels,  frame-mounted pump and cushy aftermarket saddles.  A standard issue Brompton saddle can be substituted at no extra cost. The bike above is an M6R.

P6L used side

This is a P6R.  Both bikes have similar builds with the exception of the bars.

M6L used back

M6L used front

These bikes are pristine. Somebody saved a bundle on a barely-used used Brommie!

Keep an eye on our blog.  We’ll post more Brompton news as it happens!

Email Elton for further information or to arrange a purchase of a new Brompton from stock or by special order.

Linus Roadster and Rambler Special Offer!

We’re offering a $50 Harris Cyclery gift certificate with purchase of any Linus Roadster or Rambler currently in stock.


The Linus’ Rambler 7 is a very comfortable, no-fuss ride that’s up-right and relaxed, but with plenty of speed when you want it. The tough steel frame damps vibration so you stay comfortable all ride long. It features an easy-to-use seven-speed drive train so you can focus on the scenery along the Greenway and still have that easy gear for the last hill before home. Big 700c wheels roll smoothly even over the pavement chatter on your commute to work, and the full-wrap fenders defend you from the splashy slop on those not-so-sunny days. Currently we have this bike available in black or burgundy in a 21″ or 18″ frame.

linus-roadster sport

Next up, the Linus Roadster Sport evokes the simple elegance of quiet French roads from cycling’s golden era: warm light, crisp air, and the exhilaration of a trip made on two wheels. The Roadster’s beautiful steel frame is fitted with a 3-speed internal Nexus rear hub for smooth gear changes that make easy work of hills. This stately ride comes equipped with a rear rack, fenders, and a kickstand—everything you need to run to work or the store, always with a rakish grin and dry pant cuffs. The light aluminium wheels are wrapped in wide, versatile tires while the comfy saddle and genuine leather grips look as good as they feel. Currently we have this bike available in navy in 21″ and 18″ frames or black in a 21″ frame.

linus-roadster 8

Last but not the least the Linus Roadster 8 offers the same great ride quality as the Roadster Sport but with an extended range of gears.  This classic bicycle will surely keep you smiling for miles and miles.  We have this model available in olive or grey in a 21″ and 18″ frame size. And also in blue in a 18″ frame.

Shop us online or call us at 617 244-1040 for more info.  This offer applies only to models currently in stock and cannot be extended to special orders.  $50 gift certificate cannot be applied to the purchase of the bike.

Stop by for a test ride today!
