The Hummingbird is our go-to mixte bike for running errands, leisure riding and all-around chic daily activities. The bike has a slim vintage-style 'mixte' frame made from lightweight Chromoly steel, with super curly 'moustache' handlebars, a sprung saddle and matching mudguards. The Hummingbird's handlebar stem sticks forward and the head tube is short for a speedy agile ride that screams 1960s France!

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 Hummingbird 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!
