Space Saver

Little Bike Look Out - Spacey Space Saver

Compared to many of the vintage compact bicycles out there, this is positively futuristic.  Let's not fear the future, let's trust in it - it's got a sticker of assurance after all.  Perhaps a superhero has adopted this bike, small enough to hide under a cape, and spacey enough to match any pants over lycro combo. Little Bike Look Out - what's that?  Woody loves vintage little bikes, in fact she rides a cream Raleigh Compact from 1986. So when she spots a... SEE MORE arrow-right

Top Hat Tinker by Woody

Top Hats & T*ts - Raising Money + Awareness for Breast Cancer

As we fast approach Brighton's Artist Open House festival, one of Woody's characters 'Top Hat Tinker' has been in the limelight.  Tinker has always been a favourite with one of the studio's inspiring friends Sara Cutting.   Diagnosed with breast cancer in July and following on from surgery, Sara is currently having chemotherapy. To raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and awareness of breast cancer, Sara has created the 'Daily Headgear Challenge',...

Little Bike Look Out - Shopping not sitting

Spotted saddle-free, perhaps a security measure, but still looking cool with the recycled supermarket basket.      Little Bike Look Out - what's that?  Woody loves vintage little bikes, in fact she rides a cream Raleigh Compact from 1986. So when she spots a little bike, she takes a photo. Expect to see lots of snap shots of these miniaturized steel wonders. Your little bike? So lucky! Feel free to tweet this post....

Little Bike Look Out - Kingpin Filing

Ahhh dreams of a magical filing system where you place your files in a tray on the back of a little bike.  You cycle super fast and the paperwork flies out - firstly in to a large cloud of paper and then each sheet shoots in to its proper well. Sorted.  Little Bike Look Out - what's that?  Woody loves vintage little bikes, in fact she rides a cream Raleigh Compact from 1986. So when she spots a little bike, she takes a photo. Expect to...

Little Bike Look Out - Coffee Shopper

This is the Raleigh Shopper colour we remember most from growing up- true 70s style.  Dynamo rear light still intact, along with the white rimmed tyres and Sturmey Archer gears.  Looking to tackle some of Brighton's hills on 3 gears? Best to top up on a espresso or two.  Here's our favourite local coffee haunts: Small Batch, Mr Wolf, Flying Saucer.  Little Bike Look Out - what's that?  Woody loves vintage little bikes, in fact she rides a cream Raleigh Compact...
