Albion is a road and commuting bike with a retro hint, ready to handle a dreamy London to Paris adventure, or a speedy jaunt across town. With a sleek steel frame, it features user-friendly STI road gears to get you up and over hills, and matching saddle and bartape to keep things co-ordinated.
Shimano 16 Speed Drivetrain
A Shimano Claris 16 speed drivetrain is what powers the Albion up the rough lanes or through the city, making it that little bit easier for you to get to your destination. The reliable and trusty Shimano indexing should keep your confidence up and never let you down. With a 50-34 compact chainset to assist the drivetrain you shall not only be able to power up the hills with ease but descend at a fast pace.
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.
