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.

Commuter Bike Gearing Explained

The Kingfisher urban bicycle 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!

More About The Kingfisher Bike

A Lightweight Bike For Commuting
Weighing in at just 12kg with a lightweight Chromoly Steel frame, the Kingfisher is the perfect balance of speed and sturdiness. This urban is at home racing on the way to work, or carrying upstairs at the end of the day.

Perfect for use as either an adult men's bike or a ladies bike, the Kingfisher is a style that doesn't discriminate!

Japanese Shimano Gears and Brakes
The Bobbin Kingfisher features a Shimano Tourney trigger gear shifter and Tourney 7-speed gears with a 14-28 rear cassette. Control drive and speed as you pedal your ladies or men's bike to work (or the pub!).

Commuter Bikes
If you're trying to find the best bike for commuting, then look no further. Our Kingfisher is an urban bike that perfectly blends substance and style. A commuter bike needs to be lightweight, with enough gears to maximise pedal power.

But a commuting bike also needs to be slim enough to store and sturdy enough to last you years to come. The fact that the Kingfisher looks gorgeous is an added bonus! 

Retro Road Bikes
At Bobbin, we're market leaders in creating retro bikes that are practical as well as cool. Unlike a standard road bike, we like to think we've created a modern classic with the Kingfisher. A hybrid bike that blends commuting and leisure as well vintage and modern styles.
