If you're after a bicycle with a retro twist, the Pelago Bristol vintage-style city bike is certainly worth a look.
two models available, a one-speed and a three-speed in black and grey respectively, both have a classic profile, as well as large 28-inch tyres, a lugged steel frame, Brooks leather saddle and of course, all those essential little extras – chainguard, reflectors, bell and kickstand for example.
Available online, prices start at 575 Euros.

Remember the reissued Adidas London track top from last week? Well, there's an even more exclusive release from further up north – the limited edition Adidas Manchester trainers and track top.
It's part of the Size? 10th anniversary celebrations (so only available there) and certain to be in very short supply, with just 500 of each item being made, each numbered for added exclusivity. See the numbering details over the page – it's a bit cool.
Not ideal if you're from the red half of Manchester (as the design looks to be predominantly sky blue), but maybe you can console yourself with the red detailing. No price as yet, but expect them offered for sale from April 17th 2010.

Fans of 1960s architecture may like to sip their coffees from this Fuff City espresso cup.
The cup is decorated in a panoramic illustration of what they describe as 'traditional British landscape' which translates to high rises and concrete buildings. If you look a bit closer, you can even see the Trellick Tower rising in the background. The scene is topped off with an image of a typically British bird – the pigeon that crops up on all of Fuff City's wares.
The company also sells an estuary design with a similar look. This cup and saucer will set you back £12.
