City Bikes

For the most part, I’m pretty happy living on my tiny island.

And I’ve found one more reason to smile.

Say hello to these lovelies


1. BIANCA Velocommute Bike 2. TRISTAN Messenger Bike 3. BIANCHI REKORD 745 Velocommute Bike 4. AXL Messenger Bik 5.CHURCHILL Messenger Bike 6.SUNDAE Messenger Bike

It’s all thanks to Vanguard Designs, a bunch of Singaporean elves working to restore classic rides and collecters’ pieces.

They also do customisation and restoration and, here’s the best part, you don’t have to buy.Just rent one of their 6-speed Raleigh City bikes or classic French vintage bikes  with coaster brakes and little kiddie cruisers.

They are here.

Creme cycles. The words jut feel so lush in your mouth.

They make simple and accessible bikes.

Here they are, the dream creme team in Barcelona….oooh everyone looks so stylish and I’m just talking about the bikes!

In their own words:

“Creme had been a dream that we kept in our minds, a dream that slowly grew into a strong vision of a new, special bike brand. One day, after stumbling across a bunch of beautiful old bike parts in a friends attic and realizing just how little care and attention to detail can be found in today’s city bikes, we decided that it was time to make our dream a reality.”

Brave words that make me love their bikes even more. Not that I really need another excuse.

Ride these European two-wheelers either way, semi-upright for comfort and speed or areodynamic for ultra fast “wind-in-your-hair” kind of ride.

Anyone out there with a creme bike?
