The Brown Jersey 'Speakeasy' is the new 27 Speed flatcar road bike in our range.  A stunning frame fabricated out of Reynolds 520 butted CrMo tubing is available in 5 frame sizes to enable a perfect fit for riders of all sizes.

The geometry of the bike is performance road inspired, yet with the inclusion of a set of bosses on the seat stays a pannier rack can be easily installed to create  one heel of a commuter bike!

Fitted out with Shimano Sora 9 Speed rear derailleur, Shimano Sora Triple front derailleur and slick Shimano Sora flat bar trigger shifter - all combined with a very nice FSA Gossamer triple chainset (external bearing BB of course!!).  Weinman double wall rims shod with 28mm gunwale tyres for that extra bit of retro bike chic.  A very nice bicycle for those who want high quality and performance from their retro bike.

Available at one of the smart bike shops that stock Brown Jersey Bikes, online at our website or in our own Ubran Bike Shop in Ultimo Sydney (478 Wattle Street Ultimo).  RRP $1,085 AUD

Retro Ladies Bike 3 Speed Milan RED

The Brown Jersey Retro Ladies Bike range has been very popular amongst our bike shop customers over the Summer months.  The Brown Jersey Retro Ladies Bike range consist of 4 internal gear hub models - all Sturmey Archer equipped.

Perhaps the most popular bike in the range at the moment is the Brown Jersey Milan Mixte in red.  This is not just a very elegant Retro Bike - it's a very high quality bike from the ground up.  Like all bikes in our range this one has sealed bearing hubs, sealed bearing headset, sealed bearing bottom bracket and stainless steel spokes.  These bits, combined with the polished alloy finish on a majority of the high quality components means that you won't be seeing rust on this bike, unlike many of the cheap retro bikes that are currently plaguing the retro ladies bike space.

The Brown Jersey Milan is fitted with the bullet proof Sturmey Archer 3 Speed internal gear hub and is matched with the lovely crisp shifting Sturmey Archer trigger shifters. New on this model for this season is the uber of Velo Plush saddle, the Velo soft ergo grips and the composite full length mudguards.

As far as retro ladies bikes go this little mite bike stands head and shoulders above the crowd in terms of quality, design and style.  RRP $739 AUD.

Brown Jersey Fixie - 'Monaco' Limited Edition

Brown Jersey Bikes are well know for their great quality fixie bikes and with very good reason.  The fixes we build are superior design, incredible quality and hipster stylish.  All of our fixie bikes have sealed bearing hubs front and rear, sealed bearing headsets and sealed bearing bottom brackets.  Our standard wheels utilise high flange Formula (yes, sealed bearing) hubs, stainless steel spokes (no rust) and lovely double wall polished alloy rims.

A new addition to the fleet this year is the 'Monaco' Limited - an all black affair with metallic silver decals.  Standard equipment on this fixie includes Prowheel 'Chariot' chainset, bull horn bars and as usual with all our fixies, forged track ends, forged seatpost collar, forged fork crown and forged fork tips.

Very stylish.

Available in 5 frame sizes at $620 in the standard configuration - but if you really want to make this bike sing perhaps add some Plus Son wheels and a Brown Jersey Leather Saddle!!!

Newly Updated Specification for the Paris Creme'

The 8 Speed Sturmey Archer Internal Gear Hub PARIS CREME has been a cornerstone of our Mixte bike lineup for some time, but recent specification updates have taken this bike to a new level and they are flying out the door as a result.

We've added a genuine leather Brown Jersey MOMMA CASS Saddle (which is both sprung and padded for you posterior comfort!).  Matching textured leather KOMFURT grips also add to the high end feel of the bike.

Also new is a larger and more swept back handlebar that delivers a very upright and comfortable riding position.

Also standard on this model are the 28mm gunwale tyres and the lovely polished alloy fenders.

On the drivetrain side we are now using a 36T front chainset and this makes the bike more rideable overall.

At $985 in this new spec, it represents excellent value for a great bike that will last a lifetime.

'the Music' Brown Jersey product feature

'the Music' Brown Jersey product feature

A nice bit of editorial in the ultra hip 'the Music' magazine this week.  Really love this publication - a very nice place for a hipster bicycle brand to be seen.  Good to know that along with great music industry connections, a good eye for craft beer and quality food stops there is some eye for detail on bespoke bicycles like the Brown Jersey Fixie, Internal Gear Hub, Mixte, Hybrid and Roadbike ranges.
