Stolen in NYC: Black M3L Brompton

Last weekend, a friend’s well-loved Brompton was stolen in New York City.  Recovery seems virtually impossible, but, just in case anyone suspects Maggie — a black M3L Brompton with an unusual polished stainless chain guard —  has been spotted, or in case this particular B ends up in honest hands, here are the particulars:


  • Black 2012 Brompton M3L, serial no. 1209219098, frame no. 380949
  • Brooks B17 Ladies’ Saddle
  • Ergon handlebar grips
  • Light & Motion front light
  • Planet Bike Blinky rear light
  • Brompton toolkit
  • Monkii water bottle clip
  • Tiller polished stainless chain guard, not the usual black Brompton guard
  • Ortlieb Mini O bag (blue/black)
  • Carradice zipped roll bag (green canvas)

A police report has been filed; the theft has been registered with Brompton Bicycle, BikeWatch has been notified, and the information posted to BromptonTalk.

This is a heart-breaking loss of a good friend and fond companion; the sad specifics can be read here:

Plaudits to Mr Unfolded for support, encouragement & steerage towards a new Maggie. Chin up Cathy.

Thanks, Saul and Ian! Maggie will always have a special place in my heart – and, hopefully, enough of an impact on my brain to ensure I never let this happen again.
