Papillionaire




Another new player on the block,these budget priced Dutch style bikes can be found in the foyer of a hotel in South Yarra. There's no store at this stage, you just go for a pre arranged test ride and then order online. Don't worry about the 'budget price'.These are quality bikes with leather trimings, shimano 'Nexus' 3 speed internal gears ,Schwalbe tyres etc. Price comes in at AUD624 if you order the leather hand grips and rear luggage rack.Very similar to Linus bikes and Public bikes in the US. Perhaps they come from the same factory in Taiwan?
