We did feature this around 12 months back, but as it's one of favourite bikes and it's back for 2009 in a new colourway, we feel justified in mentioning once more the Helkama Jopo bicycle.

It was first introduced in its native Finland back in 1965 as a 'bike for all', returning in the modern era with a sympathetic update, but still packing the key classic features – low front frame, 24-inch wheels, single gear, luggage carrier and kickstand, plus the ability to adjust the seat and the handlebar to fit most sizes. And for the mean streets of 2009, it now has an integrated lock.

379 Euros will secure you a new Jopo in black and blue – and make you the envy of your friends.
