Velorbis Scrap Deluxe - A Bicycle For Feminine Urban Living
Velorbis asked Wifealiciousness and I to review the new Scrap Deluxe for Ladies, which they have recently launched. We're always up for a World Premiere, so we took the bike out for a ride last week.
I know the Scrap Deluxe well, since I have the Gentleman's model. As I've mentioned before, riding this bike around Copenhagen is a treat. In a city that has seen it all regarding bikes, the Scrap Deluxe is a real head turner. Men and women alike.
We whipped up a little film about our test drive:
Wifealiciousness blogged about it on her styling blog Modler Style - in Danish - so I'm going to let her take it away - after a quick translation into English:
"I enjoyed riding for the sake of riding and not having to go anywhere. My husband already has a Gents Scrap Deluxe and we really caused a stir as we rode around on our 'headturner' Velorbis'.
The bike is in a league all its own - the super cool grey, steel frame combined with the creme-coloured wheels, the gorgeous brown leather on the hand grips and saddle and the perfectly formed fenders and lights were an elixir for the eye. Not to mention the little 'number plate' with the Velorbis logo. The bicycle is simple, classic and completely unique.
The frame's form gives you a feeling of sitting up high, straight-backed and with a complete overview of your surroundings. The wheels seem, somehow, smaller than on other bikes and it gave me the feeling of riding a mini-bike - in the funkiest way.
It was an all-round, wonderful experience and a bike that begs to be tried - not least for the aesthetic kick!"
The most important thing from the photographer's perspective is that MAN, Wifealiciousness looks good on the Scrap Deluxe! Riding high and looking beautiful.
It's the perfect bicycle for feminine urban living. Smooth, gorgeous and downtownalicious.
No, we don't know what it weighs, so don't ask. Check Velorbis' website for more info if strange weight or tech spec questions persist in your head. :-)
