Flowery bike loveliness



I got a rather fun offer last year to style a Raleigh 20 for the company, Small wheel Good. The flowered-up Raleigh Twenty bicycle, pictured in the photos is a Cyclechic one off, created with loving care by Small Wheels Good. I chose an intricate, vintage style floral fabric and suggested the accessories and Simon Carter (the retro-velo-phile behind Small Wheels Good) brought the idea to life. With a couple of yards of daintily flowered cotton and lashings of secret-formula glue.

We decided to take the bike to the canal and take some snaps with our equally pretty model Coco. I really like these pics. There have great feeling of feminine spring time loveliness.


Small Wheels Good revive, renovate, and re-imagine small-wheeled bicycles from the 60s and 70s. If you want to order a bicycle like the one in the photo, or find out more about Small Wheels Good contact Simon at simoncarter134@googlemail.com
