Past Look of The Weeks

26th Novemeber

So it's that time of year again, where little fingers are scribbling little notes to Santa.  So if they're wishing for a lovely new bicycle or accessories this year, then here are a few ideas to inspire.

This 20" Bobbin Lollipop is perfect for those 7 to 9 years olds who like to keep active.  With it's 6 speed Shimano gears there'll be no stopping her!  It comes with its own wicker front basket for Baby or Big Ted, fenders; front and back and chainguard to keep them clean and dry.

For those fashion & safety conscious kids mongst us, look no further than Kiddimoto's helmet and matching gloves.  Loads of colours and designs to choose from; here we're featuring the ever popular Pastel Dotty.

If the wicker front basket isn't enough, then how about this Baby seat?  It attaches easily to the rear brake mount.  It even has a seatbelt for added security.

The Bobbin Lollipop comes with it's own bell as standard, but if it's something a little more unique or fun you're looking for, then how about the Liix Bunny Bell.  They'll have the whole family coo'ing.

There's no better way of finishing off a 'Look' than with Basil's handlebar flowers, lots of colours to choose from.

We hope you've been inspire!

Introduce a little panache into your bike life.  Mme Velo's gorgeous golden Sunshine backpack & pannier will be turning heads whether you're riding or walking.

We're proud to stock Brooks England, beautiful leather products crafted in the Smethwick factory, we think the Brooks B17-S complements the Bobbin Birdie...actually any Bobbin...beautifully!  Brooks Challenge Tool Bag is just the ticket and fits snugly below your saddle.  Rebecca's a big fan of the Wald basket, she says it reminds her little of LA or NYC riding.  The Wald #135 is a deep chrome plated basket that'll take care of your corner shop stop.

Sahn's elegant lid won't cramp your style and a handlebar flower should make you smile!

Do you feel the need for NO actually!  So how about a gentle cruise on this baby from *Electra Bikes?  It's their Ghostrider 3i; with modified forks, struts, fenders, handlebars and tyres it gives the bike a unique style.  Throw in a little Flat Foot Technology® and you've got yourself one sweet ride!

Every Ghostrider has to have a little devil in them, so look no further than Bern's Diablo helmet in matte black, it rocks!  Route 66 can be a long journey and those poor hands will need a little protection, BLB Retro Knit mitts are your answer, with palm padding you'll feel fewer of those bumps.

Beat it Buddy!  No not you, it's the hooter; perfect for you and the kids.  

Cycling can be thirsty work; whether you're a hot drink or cold drink kind of person.  Choose from the Italian crafted, not to mentioned environmental, 24Bottles bottle and 100% cotton twill holder.  Now if you're more of a hot drinks type, look no further than Electra's cup holder, mornings will never be the same again.

Like to travel light; phone, wallet and shades?  The British made Brooks large Challenge tool bag is perfect, you can fix it to the rear hooks on a Brooks saddle or to your handles bars.  Made from beautiful leather and still hand crafted in their Smethwick factory.

We think this is quite a look and hope you've been inspired.



*Please note Electra Bikes are not available to purchase online.  Either pick up in store or the bike can be delivered to your local bike shop for assembly, this usually costs approximately £30 - £40
