The Birdie is Bobbin's most popular bike. With its no-fuss 3 speed hub gears, mudguards and rear rack, the Birdie is practical, easy to look after and magically smooth to ride.
Featuring sophisticated matte paintwork, cream tyres and a comfy Bobbin sprung saddle, the Birdie is a classic bike with soul. Useful features like the full chainguard keep your clothes intact on the way to the shops, while the upright riding position is great for seeing and being seen. For 2015 models we have re-designed the 52cm frame into a roomier 'Dutch' size, complete with larger 700c wheels, perfect for leggier riders.

Your Birdie will be delivered to a bike mechanic in your area. Your bicycle can then be put together, inspected and adjusted to fit. Note that you will be charged a small fee for this service which you can pay on collection. We also recommend a 4-6 week check to ensure all the parts are working well.
