Bobbin bicycles.

I gave my bike a new basket and a wash and polish on Friday. So I feel a bit guilty for cheating on it and scanning the product page of Bobbin Bicycles, with its blissfully old-fashioned bikes. But ever since Sarah posted a picture of this shiny red bicycle she received as a surprise gift, I've been a'wantin' one. I have to say, I'm more than a little jealous. Hers came with a bow on the handlebar! Make sure to wear a helmet, lady.

  1. I love Bobbin bikes - I SO want a purple one. But no justification. Of course if someone was to steal my trusty hybrid...

  2. I know, Nat. Really want one. But if my bike did actually get nicked I'd be really gutted. ;p

  3. I'm sorry! In my defence, it was a complete surprise, I sent him a picture of this one months ago, labelled 'Dream Bike' & he's never bought me anything that pricey before, so it was kind of a shock.

    Just posting about it now - I cycled up Dartmouth Park Hill yesterday (near you?) and it almost killed me. Fancy a bike ride when I get rid of my cold? And of course I will wear a helmet :)

  4. Aw, that is so sweet! What a dude.

    Yes, I'd love to go on a bike ride! We have to follow my golden rule and not cycle up any streets with the word 'hill' in the name, though. I can't believe you cycled up Dartmouth Park Hill!

    Get well soon!

  5. Thats where I got my beautful Gazelle! I love Bobbin, such a beautiful shop. That red bike is pretty gorgeous too, I'd be jealous as well:) x LZ

  6. Billie's got one of those!

    It's gorge and has the best bell I've ever heard but it's SO HEAVY. Not practical for those of us with excessive stairs...

    *sigh*

  8. I would love a bike just like this. I love old fashioned bikes. I'm trying to work out whether I would be too lethal on the road! Probably! I even considered buying one and just riding around London Fields cycle lanes but I'm sure I'd be bored in no time. xx

  9. I got my cherry red Metropole(completely with wicker basket)earlier this month and I love it to bits. It was a bit of a gamble as I didn't know how to cycle at the time but I can now pedal unaided (although I'm hilariously wobbly and can't turn yet!) and am looking forward to taking my beauty on countryside jaunts very soon. An absolute dream of a bike, still can't believe I own it.
