In Brief

Following the lead of some fashion retailers, the sister store of Crate and Barrel has begun selling bikes.

We’ve seen quite a few brands venture into selling bicycles over the past few years. Home furnishings retailer CB2 is the latest. They collaborated with Republic Bikes on the design and development of two classic Dutch opafiets (grandpa’s bikes) inspired models. The abuelo and abuela or ‘his’ and ‘hers’ are 3-speed city bikes designed for commuting or relaxed riding. Both models include cargo racks with bungee straps. The women’s abuela comes with a skirt guard on the rear wheel and a fully enclosed sprocket and chain.
