The 'city bike' sector is pretty busy right now, but there's always room for one more, not least when they look as good as the bikes by Fred's Bicycles.
The range contains just two bikes – the Ladies Bicycle and the Gentleman's Bicycle, with both designs inspired by the simple and robust models heavily used in East Africa and spotted by the company's founders in a trip there. Indeed, profits are shared with the charity Bicycles Against Poverty (BAP), which distributes bicycles throughout rural Uganda to improve access to markets, healthcare and education.
The frame of the bicycles is made from galvanised steel. The chainring and chain guard are also steel, with the brakes, brake levers, wheel rims and clamps all alloy. There's also an optional basket made from natural wicker, as well as wrap around lights and a tote bag in you want them.
Each model sells for £339, with the price including a spare pot of paint, should you get the odd scratch to the paintwork on your travels.
