PENANG BROMPTON BICYCLE SHOP
March 2015
The Brompton culture in Malaysia is growing. To date, the number of Brompton owners listed in the FB MY Brompton Malaysia group now exceeds 330. Another FB group, MY Brompton Commuter actively promotes the bike as one of the better ones for commuting; many of it's members actively commute to work while other members use it in their multi-mode cycling adventures. Since last year, there is also a Brompton Penang FB group.
A few shops in Kuala Lumpur & Petaling Jaya (i.e. Pedalspot & Vans Urban) sells the bicycle, accessories and parts.


Now, just about two months ago, PGCycleSpot opened a shop in Penang selling Brompton bicycles too. With this shop, the Penangites and those in the northern states don't have to go down KL to get the Brompton bike.
PGCycleSpot had earlier opened a shop at Straits Quay, that was a smaller shop with limited space. Now with the shop relocated to a spanking new shoplot in the upmarket Penang Times Square, they hope they will make themselves more prominent.
Update 2017: PGCycleSpot is now located at New World Park.

Brompton bicycles of various colours and configuration are on display in "boxy" designed shelves. These type of shelving with square segmented sections seems is a favourite way to display the Brompton as it shows how well the compact folded bike can fit into a small space.


Also on display are bike bags that fit easily onto the bike's front carrier block. The above photo shows the Ortleib Mini O bag.


White coloured tester bikes are there for interested buyers to try out. The orange bike shown above belongs to Andy, one of the partners of the shop.
Being relatively new, the shop is building up it's stock of bicycles, accessories and spares in order to give its customers a wider range. So, Penangites can look forward for more!
