The Sunday Times

April 12, 2017

The Sunday Times review the Bobbin Monsieur bike “You could ride this bike I suppose, but that’s not really the point. Its real purpose is to be propped up against the shutters of your country house in Provence. For those of us who don’t yet have the house, the bike provides a glimpse of the lifestyle. What’s not to like about the combination of French navy metalwork, cream wheels and brown leather trim.”

Company

April 12, 2017

In our first range of bikes we made a little 1960’s style shopping bike. It was like a little sweetie! People ask us about it…so we are planning the return of the small wheel Bobbin.

Bike Tribes, The Independent 2007

April 12, 2017

Have you read about the phenomenon of ‘Bike Tribes’? There have been countless articles and even a book written about fashion/cycling crossovers. Bet you didn’t know that we started it? Here’s Tom’s article, written for The Independent in 2007 to coincide with the first Smithfield Nocturne.

“Go to cities such as Copenhagen and Amsterdam and you’ll notice that everybody rides, but most of the bikes are identical. Here, our cycle lanes and box junctions are filling up with recumbents, vintage racers and folding and fixed-wheel bikes. London’s complex fashion tribes are aligning themselves to a corresponding riding style, and your choice of bike is now an extension of your wardrobe and a reflection of what’s happening on the street, in politics, music, fashion and art. Our cyclists, it seems, are tribalising themselves.”

Maybe someone will recognise us when we next go to Barcelona haha!

Look Magazine

April 12, 2017

Look Magazine used a gorgeous red Bobbin bike in a Christmas style spread. It’s a fun idea, but I think they over-cooked it with the massive sexy heels and glittery bustier.  Get that girl a coat and scarf, before she catches a cold!!!

Evening Standard

April 12, 2017

Jasmine Gardner writes ‘it’s funny what happens to cyclists when we buy a bike.

Mr Benn

Wagtail Ride Along the Crab and Winkle

May 30, 2017

Wagtail designer Tom Bobbin took his new machine for a spin along the Crab & Winkle Way from Canterbury to Whitstable and back, enjoying a swim and possibly a couple of craft ales en route.  The massive 2.1" tyres of the Wagtail cruised easily over this sometimes gravelly Sustrans route, the gears proved more than a match for the hills, plus the swept-back bars give a nice relaxed position that keeps everything civilised.  There were also a few heads turned on the bike path at the tasty copper colour and general suave arrangement that is part vintage MTB/ part cruiser.  What more can you ask for?  Summer's here and the byways are beckoning. (I'm also going to be adding some mudguards and porteur rack to use it as a London commuter; wave if you see me.)  Saddle up on your Wagtail here

V&A Bicycle Drawing Studio

April 12, 2017

Over 100 participants joined us for three separate drawing sessions in the spectacular Raphael Gallery. The evening guest-starred Tim Gunn from The Old Bicycle Showroom.

“One of the purposes of drawing is to train us to understand through observation. Like the figure, a bike is an animate object. Drawing a resting bike can help us to understand how it’s made and how it works.

Like the figure, bikes are very hard to draw. They have a skeleton (frame); straight lines and curves; joints (lugs); legs (stays); a back end; an inherent, latent strength and the capacity to move and power forwards. It’s a holistic design: each part relates to, and relies on, the others.

Because bikes work with and mirror bodies, in a used bike you will also find subtle clues about the bike’s owner. From there on you can start to piece together the bike’s narrative: the journeys and adventures it’s been on.

A beautiful bike is much more that the sum of its parts: it’s a balance of aesthetics, form and function. These things, coupled with the animation that comes from human use, are what give a bike its unique character: its soul.

As your pencil takes its own exploratory journey across paper, these mysteries will begin to reveal themselves.”

Bobbin showcase new range to trade customers at Corebike UK

Eurobike 2016

April 12, 2017

Eurobike is the largest bike trade show in the world. We have visited every year since 2008 and exhibited since 2011.

The show is really international and is a great chance to meet dealers and distributors from around the world. We always try to do something a bit different with our booth design to communicate our core brand values of authenticity, joyfulness and natural style.

New products include a belt-drive hub-geared commuting bike (Darkstar), boys range (Moonbug), mini-velo (Metric) and two racers (Luna and Scout). Furniture courtesy of London design studio Very Good and Proper.
