700Bike first developed a reputation for its annual vintage rides – events where Beijingers dressed up in zhongshan suits and qipao and cruised city streets on vintage bicycles. These days, 700Bike is still keeping cyclists happy, but with its range of smart lifestyle bicycles.
The Beijing-based company offers four models, with styles running the gamut from the sporty Mini (from 1,499RMB) to the subtly retro Bowler. 700Bikes are belt-driven, which means little maintenance and no oily chain – the perfect commuter bike. All 700Bikes have an OLED display that tracks your speed and location via its app, which also has social functions so you can get competitive with other 700Bike owners.
The store also has a charming coffee bar attached to their space.
