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 Birdie Ladies Hybrid Heritage Bike Mushroom

The Birdie is Bobbins signature bike and they have thousands of women swishing around town and along country lanes on its trademark lugged frame. With no-fuss hub gears, mudguards and rear carrier rack, the Birdie is practical, beautiful and magically smooth to ride.

Constructed around a vintage hi-tensile steel frame featuring a low step over frame, making it easier and more dignified to mount and dismount the bike. Featuring sophisticated Matte paintwork, Cream tyres and a comfy Bobbin sprung saddle, the Birdie is a classic bike with soul. Useful features like the full chainguard keep your clothes intact on the way to the shops, while the upright riding position is great for seeing and being seen at those awkward junctions. Your view of the road can be adjusted, due to the alloy microadjust seat post to accomodate for a custom fit.
