Yes, that’s right. Bikes! Anything that enhances your personal style and grace on a daily basis falls into that myriad of endless possibilities that we call fashion – a statement bicycle is no exception.
Whether you are a morning commuter cruising the streets at dawn or a cycling enthusiast, you will appreciate the stunning range of bicycles that Tokyobike have to offer. Tokyobike started life in the Japanese suburb of Yanaka as little ago as 2002. Quintessentially Japanese, the bikes have Tokyo in their DNA; take this statement from the company as an example:
“In the same way the mountain bike was designed for the mountains so Tokyobike was designed for Tokyo.”
The bikes are more about being slow rather than fast, a sort of relaxed nature which enables you to discover your own city at your desired pace. Take in the sights, ride around, have a coffee, you get the jist – these bikes make it easy!
2012 marked the opening of two European stores: Berlin and London. The Shoreditch store is sleek and stylish, emulating the bikes within. Various ranges are available, from single speed to the faster sportier version, all of which come in beautiful colours. Take the all-white single speed bike for example; purposefully simple, it can only be described as “cool”. Tokyobike also offer some nice looking accessories that can give your bike that extra quality and usefulness.
Maybe you’re not in the market for a new bike – you may not even like cycling – but just looking at these pieces of art on wheels is pleasing enough. Head over to www.Tokyobike.co.ukto check out the full range. Prices range from £520-£600.
