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.

Gearing Explained

The Brownie 7 has a single gear shifter, numbered 1-7. Number 7 is a fast gear. Use this on a good day / if you are late. Number 1 is the easiest gear. Use this if you encounter a horribly steep hill. Don't use it on flat roads. Your legs will spin furiously and it will take ages!

It Has Easy-Use Gears
If you thought you needed 21 gears...let us persuade you to think again. The Brownie 7 has all the gears you need with a Shimano Tourney rapid-fire shifter, 7-speed gears and 14-34 rear cassette.

So what does that all mean? Well, the gear shifting is simple to suit your riding style, leaving you to concentrate on looking around, waving at passers-by and enjoying the ride. Perfect for a dependable ride whether you're stuck on a steep hill or just cruising along.

It Has a Lightweight Frame
The Bobbin Brownie 7 has a lightweight alloy rack on the back, to match the alloy frame. At just 13kg, you'll notice the lightness if you need to carry your bike up steps. The Brownie 7 is the perfect bike if you live in an upstairs apartment or have to carry your Dutch style bike anywhere.

Frame Size
The Brownie is a 700cc bike available in two sizes (S/M and M/L), with standard wheels, making spares easy to source.  If you're looking for a larger bike, check out the Daytripper and other road bikes - with the same specs but on a larger frame.
