The Birdie is Bobbin’s most popular bike and they have thousands of women swishing around town and along country lanes on it’s trademark colourful frames. With it’s no-fuss 3 speed hub gears, mudguards and rear rack, the Birdie is practical, easy to look after and magically smooth to ride. And with a colour spectrum Mary Quant would be proud of, it’s getting a reputation for dropping jaws and turning heads from Islington to Echo Park.
About the Bobbin brand
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.
