Classic boys bikes can be a little dull, so here we have a rather 70’s glam metallic blue or bronze colour, tempered by smart whitewall tyres. The UK version has a co-ordinated painted rear rack for all your daily gubbins. Note girls: ride the Daytripper or the Monsieur for the perfect ‘boyfriend bike’ look.
The Daytripper features Sturmey Archer hub gears and chunky gumwall tyres for extra comfort over urban potholes or country lanes. The fitted carrier rack is ideal for carrying a pannier or groceries. For 2015 Bobbin have re-designed the frame geometries so that the larger 57cm frame will give a better fit for the taller gentleman.
Sturmey Archer Rear hub
Famous for more than a century, Sturmey-Archer have always been pioneers in the design of internal gear hubs, hub brakes and dynamo lighting creating the first 3 speed bicycle hub in 1902.
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.
