First introduced in 1965, the Helkama Jopo bicycle is a Finnish classic – and one you can buy again today.

The new version of this ‘bike for all’ is an update, but keeping the original’s obvious features – bold colour choices, low front frame, 24-inch wheels, single gear, luggage carrier and kickstand, as well as the ability to adjust the seat and the handlebar to fit most sizes. There’s even the addition of an integrated lock for these crime-ridden times.

You can pre-order now in your colour of choice from the Finnish Design Shop, priced at 339 Euros (around £270).
