Spring is just outside of the door (i know it snowed yesterday but the sun is back today, AND it’s kind of warm) so time for a new Cinelli cap.
Check the new Nebula style with reflective stripes!
and of course on tictail.bavabici.com
As you may remember i found Findra at Eurobike. I loved the feeling of the clothing all made in super soft merino wool (safe merino spun in Italy) all made in Britain and with very nice special details. As an example they are seamless which make them very very comfy! also they look so good that they have become my favourite clothing right now. I use almost every day the Caddon cowl neck with the arm warmers and the neck warmer on my commute. If it’s warmer when i ride home i take off the arm warmers.
I have now a very little stock just to see if my customers like Findra as much as i do. If you have any questions please email email@example.com and i will be happy to give you more details.
So even this year Eurobike has come to an end. Four crazy days with bikes bikes bikes, meetings, new faces, old faces, new products and old ones.
As far as i could see the biggest trend is e-bikes, nowadays you can buy parts från Shimano for your e-bike, special helmets, e-mtb and even e-fatbike! I don’t want to say if it’s good or not but it’s a fact that e-bikes are taking a big chunk in the bike world. The other two trends that i could see where more and more fat bikes and more and more adventure bikes, bags and racks.
Of course i visited my brands and saw a lot of nice Chris King hubs and headsets and a lot of shining product from White Industries. But i also checked upp new interesting brands: Findra, Effetto Mariposa Selle Italia brand new saddle Net, Palomar new bottle and some more. You will see some of them in the webshop soon. For more info and pictures check my Instagram.
Santa Cruz showed outstandig bikes as always, at the Enve booth you could see two amazing V10 and even a special Vanilla bike made for the Chris King 40th anniversary. I was disappointed by Giro that last year had a great collection. When i asked if they had changed the designer they told me that they want to concentrate on more technical clothing. Boring. Nothing really innovative.
POC showed some very interesting prototype of a coming commuter collection. Keep an eye on POC beginning of fall.
Probably the best news is that Bavabici will be able to sell Surly again! It’s gonna take a little bit of time before everything is fixed but soon i will be able to offer Surly again.
So for a while you will not be able to pick up i am sorry. But it has been difficult for me to make it work now when i am in school all day as when i come back i have a lot of things to do (like orders, invoices and such) and i work on weekends in a shop in Södermalm so yes i do have only 24 hours so it doesn’t work anymore. If there is something that you really need to see and try on you can reach me vis firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to find a time to book that fits both you and me. Sorry about this but as i said it doesn’t work right now. I hope it’s not a big problem for anybody.
You can easily find on the website a category for each grup 100 sek, 200 sek and 300 kr. It’s incredibly cheap, i actually loose a lot of money but i need space and money so you are lucky! Help me to empty my flat and get a bargain!
A sign of spring: new Cinelli caps! Also finally a restock of White Industries freewheel, probably the world best freewheel. Right now all sizes in stock.
Xmas time! i know what you are thinking: “oh come on it’s far away” well you know how fast it goes and what about trying to keep those promises you made last year about NOT doing presents at the last minute? you can still buy a lot of sales item, some of them perfect Xmas presents. Check the SALE category and the SUPER SALE category to find many surprises for the bike nerd near you (or yourself). The website looks a little bit different now that’s why the sales are still on. I want to concentrate on the brands that you find only at Bavabici and to be able to keep a bigger stock of those brands i had to cut down on other brands but you can still find them in other shops in Stockholm. I just want to be able to offer a bigger image of the brands that i carry and support.
So check the new category system and let me know if you have any questions or ideas.
As many knows already i have decided to go back to school this year so i study Fine Woodworking at Sankt Eriks Gymnasium right now, full-time. This means a little bit less time for Bavabici but it doesn’t mean i am closing or anything like that. I will though be away for different reasons now and then. My daughter that was helping me before is now living in Denmark so when i am out of town the shop is closed.
Next week 20/11 to 29/11 there will be no pick up or shipping and all Xmas orders must come in before the 18th of december after that i will not be able to ship until beginning of 2016.
Then i will be in Portland doing my internship for school. And one of the place i will be as an intern is the amazing Sykkes Wood Fenders in Portland, i’m so excited! So 18/12 to 06/01 there will be no shipping or pick up, after that i will have an assistent to ship until i come back in february. I will still be able to answer all emails so don’t hesitate to contact me, bike related questions are still my priority!
Yeah, finally a lot of items from PDW and Snow Peak that have been out of stock are back, check out all the new stuff on shop.bavabici.com and remember Bavabici have a small stock so if you see something buy it now before it’s gone. Also, I go to school full time nowadays so i’m not here all the time. There will be a week stop shipping/stop pick up end of october and end of november and then the shop will be closed for Christmas and the whole january ( i will do my woodworking apprentice time in … guess? Portland!!!) so do your christmas shopping now to be sure to get what you want and also so you don’t stress at the last minute!
