their hair without getting in a sweaty lather.

  1. As a bobbin bike owner I would reiterate all of the above. I bought mine via their website and it was a superb service, even when you can’t actually visit the shop. Sian does her best to make sure your needs are catered for and your kept informed about your orders. Now don’t get me started on how much I love this bike!
