We’re happy to announce that NYCeWheels has come onboard as a sponsor.
NYCeWheels is located in the Yorkville section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. They started out selling electric scooters in 2001 and they’ve since evolved into stocking a large selection of unique electric and human powered bicycles, kick scooters, and folders. We’ve been wanting to put a little more time and energy into covering folders and e-bikes, so making the connection with the folks at NYCeWheels will help us move in that direction.
Which leads me to the subject of a fun and interesting bike headed our way. As some of you who have been following us from the start may recall, I once owned a Brompton S3L and rode it as my daily commuter. Due to circumstances beyond my control [a landlord who arbitrarily banned bicycles from the building in which I work, but that's a story for another day —ed.], I ended up not needing a folder and sold the Brompton to fund another bike. I really loved that Brommie, but unfortunately, I never got around to writing a full review, so I’ve had it in my mind ever since to get my hands on another one to give it a proper EcoVelo workout and report. Long story short, in steps NYCeWheels with an offer to borrow a Brompton M3L in full EcoVelo regalia to ride and photograph for a review on the site. We’re looking forward to putting the bike through its paces and publishing a full review this summer.
