New for 2020-21, this is a re-working of our much loved Hummingbird bike. It has a slim 'mixte' frame made from lightweight chromoly steel, super curly 'moustache' handlebars, a sprung saddle and matching mudguards. It is a quirky, authentically retro bike. The riding style is coquettish: leaning forward a little with straight arms. It's a speedy and agile machine, and is a thing of great beauty.
This frame shape is evocative of 1960's France so you may consider wearing a stripy T-shirt and cocking your hat at a jaunty angle!

Notes on compatibility: The set-up of the Hummingbird is different to our other bikes. The handlebar stem sticks forward and the head tube is short. If you want to attach a front basket, we recommend the Urban Front Basket. Other baskets may be too deep and may droop forwards. If you choose the rear Lightweight Urban Carrier make sure you add these bolts If you have any questions about compatibility of accessories, contact us before ordering :)
Colours: all colours are gloss finish except "Chrome Paint" which is a complex iridescent paint that ranges from dark grey, silvery and purple-hued, depending on the light and angle.

Assembling your bike is empowering. It’s a great way to understand how it works! Please click here to view our step by step guide to assembly. View our assembly video here.
The bike arrives in a box. The handlebars, front wheel, front mudguard, pedals and saddle must be attached.
You will need a multi-tool or hex key set, 10mm spanner, 15mm wrench, scissors, pliers, a screwdriver and a pump.
Some things to note:
If you assemble your own bike, it’s very important that you do it correctly. If you have doubts, pay your local bike mechanic to check over your handiwork or assemble it for you.
In the first few weeks of use, you can expect your bike to ‘bed-in’. You must check everything is tight before each ride. Cables will stretch so your gears and brakes will need adjustment.
Finding the correct size bike starts with measuring the legs. Take a measuring tape, place it on the floor inside the leg and measure upwards. Now check the chart below.
Frame S/M (43cm frame)
26" - 34" 67cm - 86cm
5'3" - 5'7" 160cm - 170cm
Rider heights are given as a guide only. Everyone has different length legs, regardless of height. We strongly recommend measuring the inside leg before choosing the size!
