PHILOSOPHY BEHIND BIKE BY GUBI

Light and easy

Bike by Gubi is designed with visual lightness in profile, colors and graphics and ease of use and maintenance.

  • Easy to operate: Hands-free shifting makes Bike by Gubi easy to operate. The gear system from SRAM shifts automatically at 16 km/h. The absence of a gear shifter also makes for a light impression visually. All bikes also gome in an 8 speed internal gear version (Shimano Nexus).
  • Easy to maintain: Bike by Gubi is equipped with waterproof and maintenance-free Cambium saddle and grips from world-renowned Brooks England.
  • Visually light: Thin profiles of the fenders and chain guard makes for a visually light appearance of the bikes as seen from the side. The same does the graphics of the bikes: Basically a Bike by Gubi-bike get the graphic appearance from the colors of the frame, fork and fenders and matching saddle, grips and tires. Simplistic, Nordic tradition. The only decal on the bike is the Bike by Gubi-decal.
  • Easy to handle: The possibility to back-pedal makes it easy to position the pedals for a quick start when commuting in urban environments with many stop-and-go.
  • Light-weight: Bike by Gubi-bikes are founded on CrMo-steel frames and forks which allows for the use of less steel to obtain the same strength.
  • Easy to choose from: Bike by Gubi comes in two sizes for gents (56 cm og 60 cm) and one size for ladies (52 cm). – Along the color dimension, the options to choose from are more, though. You can be sure to find a Bike by Gubi that matches your color preference.

      The journey

      Bike by Gubi – it all began one day I stumbled over a picture of a familiar bike. Instantly, I recognized the bike as the same bike I bought out of my own pocket when I was 14 years old. Wonderful bike. I had to see it again. 50 years ago I gave the bike to a gentleman and he had kept it since. I bought it back and besides the front wheel, it was fully functional.

      Gubi Olsen forwarded the picture of the beautifully renovated bike to Raleigh, England with an aim to allow to modernize Raleigh’s classic Tourist de Luxe model seen on the streets of Gubi’s native Copenhagen. Surprisingly, Raleigh forwarded Gubi’s request to HF Christiansen, a family-owned company in Randers, Denmark. The Tourist de Luxe had been assembled in Denmark since the mid-60’s and since 1999 by HF Christiansen, Randers.

      Gubi Olsen’s quest was to give the classic Tourist de Luxe a modern makeover, but HF Christiansen cared much for the Tourist de Luxe. A classic deserves to remain a classic as new generations have kept the demand for the Tourist-model.

      Instead of modernizing the Tourist, HF Christiansen offered to cooperate to create a new complementary model – Bike by Gubi.
