The Bramble features flatter bars for a nimble feel and 7 gears operated with a single shifter, making it easy to navigate hillier areas. For 2015 Bobbin have introduced a 3rd, larger 52cm ‘Dutch’ size, complete with bigger 700c wheels and ideal for leggier riders. A nippy and dependable steed that’ll add some serious style to your dash across town.
Shimano 7 Speed Drivetrain
Loaded with a Shimano Tourney rear derailleur and a Shimano rapid fire shifter, a silky smooth gear change is what you will get here. A wide range of gears assures you that battling through the country lanes or round town should never be a struggle.
The large 700c wheels offer great strength and are more than capable of withstanding the city roads, with their potholes, or quiet gritty country lanes. The wheels come fitted with gumwall Kenda tyres and offer great grip and puncture protection.
Another great feature is the full length/full coverage chainguard. This keeps the chain completely separate and away from your clothing and with the mudguards, water/mud off you back.
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 a 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.
