New bike in town!




I'm very excited to share with you that I've teamed up with Urban Bike Store to introduce to you a Finnish design icon that only recently arrived to Switzerland: Jopo. There'll be a giveaway for you in this post and more surprise posts to come all summer!





The name Jopo comes from “jokaisen polkupyörä”, which translates into “everyman’s bicycle”, meaning that a Jopo bike can be adjusted to all shapes and sizes. The shiny white Jopo has been love at first sight to me and unlike any other one I owned before, it has foot brakes and no gear! I thought it would take some time to get used to this and was a little concered to go downhill but the foot brake is actually very easy once you get the hang of it.





The Carrie basket from Design House Stockholm is the perfect addition to the Jopo. Its designer Marie-Louise Gustafsson selected the ornate material as it reminded her of the Swedish crochet tablecloths on which her grandmother used to serve afternoon tea.





The original hand-painted cupcake bell by Annie Legroulx of DringDring is definitely the icing on the cake! Want to have one for your bike? I'm giving away one cupcake bell. All you have to do is leave a comment with your name and email address so I can contact you in case you win.

The giveaway is open worldwide and ends on Sunday, July 10.

I'd also appreciate it if you liked our new Styleseeking Zurich fan page on Facebook and Urban Bike Store's fan page for being so kind and giving away this pretty bike bell!

that is the kind of bike i want to ride on! i always wondered when they would make stylish fashionable bikes, it would be so much more pleasant to ride on a bike like that! oh my this is a giveaway! i didn't realize! how amazing is that! i think the bell is a little bit dangerous, it is like you are always staring at your bell and want to take a bik(t)e.

What a great bike! I moved from Berne to London last July and was always too scared to cycle here - up until now that my boyfriend got me a bicycle for my birthday! The perfect addition to it would be the cupcake bell.

I'm from finland and I have the same bike - white too. I love it, it's just so good to ride. If you guys want Jopo bike, you can buy it from finnishdesignshop or you have to come to finland - it's cheaper here than in internet ! :)
