Mellow yellow? Not quite. The Bobbin Birdie’s got way more groove. (A-line minis, kerchiefs and huge sunglasses come to mind.) It’s part of the new Bobbin Bicycles line of chic city rides in vibrant hues that lands at the New Amsterdam Bicycle Show this weekend, following a launch celebration at New York City bike shop Adeline Adeline.
Husband-and-wife team Tom Morris and Sian Emmison, who’ve championed the romance of upright European bicycles since opening their ultra-charming shop, Bobbin Bicycles, in London in 2007, are the creative force behind the new line. The Birdie is among four Bobbin models for men and women that arrive city-ready with steel frames, internal hub gears, fenders, chain guards and rear carriers. Visit Bobbin this weekend at Booth Nos. 17 and 18.
