Tokyobike x Gestalten

Limited Editions at Gestalten Stores
Posted by Gestalten—06/2014

With a “less is more” approach to bicycle design, tokyobike is all about offering the purest riding experience with their lightweight urban bikes. 

Founded in Tokyo, this ultracool bicycle brand has one simple principle and philosophy. “In the same way the mountain bike was designed for the mountains so tokyobike was designed for Tokyo.”

In collaboration with Gestalten, tokyobike has reimagined and updated their popular women’s Bisou and men’s CS models. The limited edition 7-speed Bisou and 8-speed CS both come equipped with timeless Brooks features including Leather Slender Grips and Team Pro Saddles.

Much-loved for their comfort, slim frames, skinny tires, and geometry, the tokyobike is also splendidly simple to maintain. Now available exclusively at Gestalten stores in Berlin, the special editions come in Moss Green, Salmon, Mustard, Saffron, and Sand Brown.

Urban Cyclists in Berlin
Posted by Angie—04/2013

Beyond the messenger and fixed-gear scenes, contemporary bicycle culture is more fashionable, diverse, and alive than ever before. According to Dustin Nordhus of Berlin’s Cicli Berlinetta, “people who live in a big city are becoming aware that it’s nicer to have a beautiful bicycle than a car.” Gestalten.tv talks to Dustin as well as bike enthusiast Anna Valtonen from Pelago Bicycles, who are featured in Velo–2nd Gear.
