Velorbis Shine, originally uploaded by [Zakkaliciousness].
My new Velorbis Scrap Deluxe bike on its first day out in the city.
It is so dreamy to ride, sitting high and proud on the bike lanes. So wicked cool, in fact, that I merely rode it around yesterday, throughout the city. Just because. No A to B. No fetch this, buy that. Just a ride.
Velorbis is building up their distributor network abroad at the moment, so the Scrap Deluxe - as well as their other fine models (my wife just got herself a Victoria) - should be coming soon to a bike shop near you.
It retails for 6500 kroner in Denmark (€860 / $1300)
It's amazing how many people the past two days have stared at the bike and, if the opportunity arose, commented to me about how cool it is.
And cool it is.
