Happy New Bike Year 2014

Well so this it. 2013 has come to an end and as everybody else we think back and forward. I must say that I am not a fan of Christmas but there is something special about a new year to come. But what happen last year?

It actually started really bad, I wanted so bad attend NAHBS in Denver but I couldn’t make it so it started with a big disappointment but then Cyklism Stockholm at Magnolia started and it came out as a really nice project and i think we all had a lot of fun and a good start for the season.

Cyklism Stockholm ended with a great alleycat and two months later BAVABICI first pop up store in Stockholmopened på Tjärhovsgatan in the south of Stockholm. It was small, it was a shared space, it was weird with vintage children clothing and bike stuff but we had a blast and a lot of customers. Old and new!

After a wonderful Eurobike end of august we had one more month in Tjärhovsgatan and the big decision was taken: Portland next! Not only because I have always wanted to visit the”world’s bike capital” but also because some of my favorite brands are located in Portland and I must say it ws the best decision ever!

The whole november was dedicated to study the bike culture of Portland and that gave me a lot of new energy, inspiration and knowledge. One of the biggest goal for my trip was a visit to Chris King and I was so impressed by the facility! I also visited my friends at Portland Design Works and found new brands to show in Sweden.

From being a total fixed gear person I can clearly see that 2014 will be the year of the gear for BAVABICI, truly and hopefully on a cyclocross. I’m having my eyes on a Hole Shot from Breadwinner with all Chris King you can think of!

Next year is already full of nice bike projects, so looking forward! Happy New Year and thanks to everybody that in some way helped BAVABICI to stay put and grow, see you next year!

Newsletter and Xmas wishlist

If you have signed up for BAVABICI newsletter you should have got one yesterday. If not you can read it here.

Now it’s all about Xmas. I am not a big fan myself but it’s nice to be off work and ride right? Myself I will close all shipping for the first time from the 20th of december to the 6th of januari. I have learned last year that to shp something after the 15-16th of december is the same as not getting it before Xmas. So if you are a smart planner you buy your present as soon as possible. And to make you wanna do that I offer free shipping until the 15th of december. And you can get the gift wrapped if you just let me know. I love to wrap presents!

If you need any tip you can check my Xmas Wishlist on shop.bavabici.com. Or you send me an email and tell me who is going to get the present and I can give you some ideas.

Xmas is here soon!
