Viking Richmond Ladies Traditional 6 Speed Bike

The Viking Richmond might be something you seem to be familiar with, borrowing a little from traditional Dutch bikes and little from traditional British bikes. It combines the traditional features of low step frame, a full chainguard, with modern alloy rims, powerful alloy V brakes, wicker basket and Shimano indexed gears. Based on the very popular Belgravia, the Richmond offers a six speed twist grip gear shift rather than push button style.

The Richmond now comes with a new "Town and Country" double drop retro frame to enhance that vintage feel. Guards are now finished in matching colours. Tyres are now white wall to further enhance that retro theme.
