Where’d you get those shoes?

Platform heels are surprisingly great for cycling – their sturdy bases are good for gripping pedals and they make your legs look loooong.

So we love this promo video from Designer Shoe Warehouse. Where’d you get those shoes?

Emerald City Spin

Emerald City Spin is a short video featuring, you guessed it, Sydney bike riders which has shown in New York to London and Sydney Bike Film Festival.

A bunch of hot and cheeky ladies wake up, get dressed and bike through the streets of the Emerald City to the beach. “Summer daze, bikes and babes, riding round, wearing shades. Feel the breeze, catch a wave, looking hot, like grenades”.

Bicycle Wine Rack – Installation Video

The Bicycle Wine Rack was our best-seller at the Melbourne Design Market last Sunday. The leather and brass contraption drew many admiring glances and our market stock was sold out by lunch time (don’t worry, we have more available online).

For those of you who’ve bought the Bicycle Wine Rack or have it on your wish list, here’s a handy installation video.

Some more information on the Bicycle Wine Rack:

  1. Fit The strap is designed to be snug so that when it stretches, it will be the right size and not too loose. The first couple times you put a wine bottle in it it will feel a little snug and the first couple of times you connect and disconnect it from the metal post it will feel a little snug.
  2. Leather Don’t be afraid to rub down the rack with olive oil once a year to keep the leather slightly moist. The material is a vegetable tanned leather that will change in colour and feel depending on how often you use it. It will darken with sunlight significantly.
  3. Clamp The clamping system is meant to be snug enough to keep the leather from moving around. It’s not invisible so don’t tighten the clamp harder than you need to.

FairRide – Find a bike and take it home

Here’s a clever social media marketing idea for you…

Virgin Mobile have launched Australia’s largest ever treasure hunt FairRide and they’re giving away 75 bikes each day across Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth).

All you have to do is LIKE the bike you’d like via Facebook then go back on the day to get clues as to its whereabouts.

The campaign kicked off this week with the first set of bikes already found. We’ve LIKED a couple of Papillionaire bikes – hope they’re turning up near us!

Who wouldn’t want a new bike for Christmas?

Bicycle Wine Rack by Oopsmark

We’ve got just the thing for your bike this party season!

If you like wine and you like biking, you’re going to love our new Bicycle Wine Rack. The handmade leather bicycle wine rack is perfect for taking wine with you on the go. It easily attaches to any 1? bike frame with antique brass fasteners, while the hidden clamps hold the bottle securely. The olive oil-treated vegetable-tanned leather will only look better as it ages.

The Bicycle Wine Rack is in store now for $29. Something for the Christmas stocking, perhaps?

Here’s a great video showing off the Bicycle Wine Rack in its home town, Montreal.

Ally Capellino on a bike

We are very excited to know that Carradice have collaborated with Ally Capellino to produce a line of bags specifically for bike commuters.

We are big fans of the high quality British workmanship embodied in Carradice’s and Ally Capellino‘s products (we use a Timothy for weekend trips away). The new range is like dream-bag-squared!

If you can’t wait for the new bags to arrive in store (slated for Northern Hemisphere Spring 2012) then some of Ally Capellino‘s current range is suitable for bike riding. Here’s a video showing Frank on a bike.
