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!
Well it was a while ago but time goes by very quick when you have fun! No new items at the moment except for the amazing Findra stuff which is actually almost gone. To sell out old stock and buy new stuff i started the biggest sale ever at shop.bavabici.com, check it out lots of stuff under 50 kr!
The weather is not with us right now but orders come in which means people start new projects and dream about spring.
Help me to empty the shelves and i will get new exciting items in the shop!
Please notice that the webshop is closed (due to my trip to Portland) during period 16th December 2016 to 5th February 2017
No orders will be shipped during this period but i will answer all emails and if you order something i will refund you the money (unless you want to book an item and you are ok that i ship it when i get back.
Happy holiday to you all, see you next year!

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 BAVABICI online shop is open again after a short summer break and all orders will be shipped as soon as possible. Most of you are still on vacation and i wish you nice weather and lots of riding!
So what’s going on in the bike world?
The ECMC 2016 just ended in Copenhagen. Our Niklas Barklund got a 9th position and we wish him the best inWCMC in Paris quite soon. Happy to see a lot of girls from Stockholm too. The famous group Cats Sthlm was represented and a new group ladies Cats Göteborg just started.
The famous Sveriges Tempo has reached international status as a 3 persons team joined and The Radavist plus Ertzui Films followed them trough the whole ride. Erik Nohlin (originally swedish but living in SF, USA and working for Specialized) teamed up with an american girl and another swedish guy. To read the whole story head to The Radavist. Maybe you get inspiration for next year competition!
Tour de France. You followed on TV so i don’t need to say much just that for 5 years in a row the winner is riding Chris King R45 hub on his bike. Hint.
The Transcontinental Race see a very well known Stockholm profile in the bike world Max and his friend Adam are doing it, quite impressive i would say! if you want to follow their ride you can follow them on the Transcontinental web page. They use a tracker rental but you can also follow them on instagram their tag is #TSRNo4P211 #tsrno4p211 i don’t think capitals matter but just in case.
Coming soon: EUROBIKE!
If you want to see a lot of pictures of the upcoming new things in the bike world you can follow Bavabici on Instagram and facebook for daily updates.
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.
