Milk Bikes introduces a small family of new city bikes, just 12 in all, that are colorful, outfitted with top-notch accessories, belt driven, unique, and downright beautiful.
Milk Bikes’ founder, Mark Meadows, started this UK-based company in 2010 with a name that speaks to the small dairy farm Meadows grew up on in Zimbabwe. Unlike the common factory-like farms, Meadow’s farm named each of their 250 Jersey cows after types of cakes, gem stones, and English football clubs. It was this concept of individuality that inspired the small batch SERIES of Milk Bike bikes where each bike has a unique name.
Barra, Handa, Arran, Harris, Lewis, and the seven other bikes that make up Milk Bikes SERIES 01. Each named after a Scottish Island, these bikes have been handmade with precision, care, and attention to detail. “The metal parts are made in London by a frame builder called Jon, another chap called Simon made the wooden bits in Edinburgh, and the paint is done in Bristol,” explained Milk Bikes’ website, “It’s good to know where stuff comes from.” The bikes are amply equipped with a Gates Carbon Drive, full fender set, Moto Pedals, a Brooks saddle and leather grips, a 3-speed internal-gear hub, and dynamo powered front and rear lights. If that wasn’t enough, the wooden deck has been hand crafted by Woodguards to carry your weekend coffee on-the-go.
Milk Bikes are available now for preorder.
