One of the great things about Brompton Bicycles is that they offer riders so many choices. You can get a single speed Brompton or a 6 speed Brompton, M handlebars or H handlebars, sleek black, or bright yellow. Bromptons comes in variety, and this allows you to pick a bike that expresses you not only as a biker but also as a person. In the last week a new line of specialized Demano Brompton Bags has taken this creativity and expressiveness to a whole new level.
Demano: the Company
Demano is a company in Barcelona, Spain, that makes bags and other accessories out of 100 percent recycled materials. Using clothing, recycled kitesurf, even scaffolding nets, Demano has created an incredibly creative and diverse line of bags. Often maintaining the original patterning of the materials that they use, Demano’s bags exhibit a wide range of styles and fashions, ranging from subtle and professional earth tones, to exciting mosaics of slashing lines and bright colors.
Now, for the first time, Demano has created a line of their bags specifically designed for Brompton Bikes. Like their other products, the Demano Brompton Bags are 100 percent green , made of recycled PVC advertising banners. Because each banner has its own unique design, each Demano Brompton Bag is creatively unique. One bag is subtle and modern, with large white print on a background of granulated grey, another bag is bright and playful, sporting the colorful outline of a cartoon man. More, because each bag uses designs that are maintained from their source material, each bag has a story, each bag represents a piece of Spanish history.
Demano Brompton bags are functional
Like Folding Bikes themselves, the Demano Bags not only look cool, they are also incredibly functional. Designed to mount on the front of the bike, the bag is reinforced to support a lot of weight and carries a respectable volume with dimensions of 30 x 42 x 14 CMS. It has a handy small interior pocket to carry the keys or the wallet, and an external one with a reflective strip. Most importantly, it is COMPLETELY WATER PROOF, an important feature given that a Brompton is built to be an everyday type of bike.
In this way, like Bromptons themselves, Demano Brompton Bags represent a merging of style and functionality— they show how bikes need not only be a way to get around, they can also be unique, exciting, a vehicle of expression and individuality.
Don’t wait, check out the Demano Brompton Bags for yourself and start to imagine yourself, flying down the street, with the wind in your hair and your heart on your sleeve.
