I walk along this place at least once a week and every time I look through the
window like an intrigued kid.
So one day I stepped in for a coffee. Yes a coffee in a
vintage bike store… But from where does this idea come from. It’s with a little
light in his eyes that Alex, the owner told me the story.
The simple story of a student hobby.
Alex loves bikes and
especially old one.The sensations with vintage bikes are for him really intense,
vintage bikes don’t respond the same way than modern one. It’s kind of a piece
of work to cycle them but that’s exactly what he likes. So he started to buy
some vintage bikes, and bikes bars on ebay or news papers and to restore them.
After few months his small student room was too full and he
had to sell some of them.
It wasn’t meant to be a business but he realized that
people were really interested on it.
And more generally he noticed that people were bored of
buying all the same stuff in big shops, people are now looking for local
products, someone to talk to and someone who really loves what he’s selling or
So then came the idea to create a new concept, to create a
place where people can have a good time, drinking a good coffee, eating yummy
antipasti and of course where people can find a wonderful vintage bike.
