Bobbin Bikes

Bobbin are interested in recapturing the magic and excitement that they all felt from riding their first bikes with the bicycles having their own personalities (and sometimes even names). The idea that cycling doesn't have to be sporty is very important to us. Buying a Bobbin means you can arrive at meeting, an art gallery or a date on time and in style. The bikes are beautiful, romantic machines that happen to be very practical. They have useful design features like mudguards, covered chains, hub gears and carrier racks so you can wear your everyday clothes and carry all your stuff around whilst looking effortlessly chic and unflustered.

Bobbin Beat Gents Hybrid Traditional Bike 700c Wheel Black

The Beat is your reliable, best mate of a bike.

With a slim yet durable steel frame, 7 speed gears and practical Bobbin elements like a fitted chain guard and mudguards, this is your daily ride. The Beat features neat rapidfire Shimano gears to get you over those tough hills and chunky 700c gumwall tyres to give a comfortable ride over potholes and rutted lanes. Chrome plated swept-back handlebars replicate a traditional design, complimented by colour coordinating grips and saddle.

The frame will fit a carrier rack or front crate, to carry all of your favourite essentials. Fitted with a slightly longer stem than the Daytripper for a moderately racier position, though still upright. Finished of with a full length chain guard, keeping the chain completely separate from your clothing as well as twin mudguards protecting you from water/mud spray.
