April Window: Alpini and Cycling
Friday, 10 April 2015 | SBC Shops
The centrepiece of Southbank Centre Shops Festival Terrace window are these stylish 'Mini Velo' bicycles by Alpini.
These small scale adult bicycles are designed with space saving urbanites in mind. Ideal for those who don't have much storage space or cyclists who have already filled their home with road bikes but still desire a fun, good-looking and compact bicycle for commutes and weekend jaunts.
Incorporating an Italian aesthetic with a strong, nimble and very speedy bike, the mini velos feature a flip flop hub. This allows the rider to choose between the simplicity of fixed gear cycling or the safety of freewheel single-speed riding.
We have two Mini Velos on show - the bright 'Tufnell' in Blue Orange and White and the equally stylish but more reserved 'Finch' in Dark Grey and Yellow. Come down to the terrace and test them out or order online. Find out more here. Matching baskets and cycle bells by Alpini are also available.
For cycle enthusiasts not in need of a new bike, we have a great range of cycle related products which make great gifts. The ever popular Bikes series by Ella Doran features bike repeat prints and cycling themed photographs on homeware such as mugs, notebooks and placemats. Maybe you want to update your current bike's look with stylish lights by Lucetta in red, white and black or get seen at night with a neon 'Flying Bike' saddle cover. Minalima also have new spin on their collective nouns range, with a 'Peloton of Cyclists' featured in limited edition numbered prints and fine bona china mugs.
