With its cream tyres and stylish gloss paintwork, the Brownie is always a welcome addition to the bike shed. New for 2015: Bobbin have added to their standard sizes both a larger 52cm ‘Dutch’ frame size with bigger 700c wheels. Something for everyone
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 cream 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 and 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 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.
