Australia's best fixie & retro bespoke urban bikes that have long lasting appeal and impressive performance charactistics.
I’ve travelled in all kind of public transport and in my cars and motorbikes but the most joyous ride is on the throne of a bike. When I say bike I mean that two-wheeler, all-metal, with both breaks on the bar handle and with the pedals to steer faster thingy. Yes a bicycle! Good guess!
Sure it’s not the fastest means of transport but it’s definitely the most awesome, breath taking, mind blowing, happiness spreading and heart pumping experience there is. And I’m not just saying this; there is scientific proof for this as well.
Geek mode ON! According to science, cycling can help to protect you from serious diseases such as stroke, heart attack, some cancers, depression, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. Riding a bicycle is healthy, fun and a low-impact form of exercise for all ages. Cycling is easy to fit into your daily routine by riding to shops, park, school or work.
That’s exactly what Brown Jersey is trying to do for us. They are creating this pocket full of joy to fit in everyone’s life one bicycle at a time. I came across them very recently while walking in Ultimo, Sydney, while I was jumping from one meeting to another. One cannot miss the amazing show room with these beautiful bright heavenly bikes staring at you from the large windows. My feet suddenly turned into 5 year old twins wanting to go inside the store and I, like every mother who loves their children, agreed.
Inside the store, I met the sales manager (who was also the mechanic for the bikes!) who showed me around and introduced me to all the bikes. I discovered that all the bikes were hand-made and 100% customizable. From the tires to the handlebars, the wheels to the breaks and the speeds to the saddle, everything could be customized as per your choice.
The bikes had beautifully carved black and brown leather saddles and handle-grips that I was eyeballing throughout the time I was there. These splendid bikes were amazingly engineered, structurally modern, observably premium and purposefully practical collectibles.
Realizing my daily commuting needs my heart shortlisted one for itself – The Islington! But I also realized that they had a bicycle for every person and every for purpose – whether it’s a casual park ride or an intense rush hour between meetings. One of these days I’ll walk into that store and buy one of these beauties.
Do check them out and I dare you not to fall in love with them!
