The Paper Bicycle is the result of redesigning a bike from the road upwards. Scottish designer Nick Lobnitz has many years experience designing bikes and is the man behind the acclaimed Carry Freedom trailer range. For the Paper Bicycle he started with what may appear to be a ‘simple’ brief: design a bicycle that is easy to use and easy to look after - and make it look good.
The result is a bike that has a great easy rolling feel with a low centre of gravity. Hop on it whatever you’re wearing and enjoy a lack of oily marks and noise. But... this is no retro bike. Using his experience of folding bikes he has designed a frame which is the right size for a whole range of riders. Bikes are fitted with a kick stand and drum brakes front and back for no-fuss use. For those that require gears the Sturmey Archer 8 speed hub gear makes a perfect partner to the front lighting hub. Front Light is a Busch & Muller Lumotec using the latest LED technology. The rear light stays on for several minutes when stopped.
Our demo bike will have a Blackburn rack added - not shown in photos here.

The Paper Bicycle looks good from any point of view. Each frame is numbered and the production and powder coating to order is all done in Ayrshire, Scotland. Delivery time for your bike will take several weeks but at the end you will have something very special.
