Some words directly from Papillionaire's site -

Papillionaire Bicycles was founded in Australia in 2009 by Alan Caras, he was soon joined by his sister, Nicola Baker.  Our aim is to integrate bike-riding seamlessly into your everyday life. Whether you’re in jeans, a dress, a suit or flip-flops, riding a Papillionaire is easy, clean and fun, with each model customizable to suit your own unique style. We've worked tirelessly to create bikes not only chic and modern, but built to last a lifetime, bringing classic European design to the streets of the US.

The secret to the amazing ride quality of Papillionaire's bikes starts with the frameset: made from very high quality 4130 cromoly (not basic high-tensile steel, like the rest of their competitors) and featuring lugged construction (instead of their competitors TIG-welded design) - these bikes feel lighter and faster then other similarly styled bicycles.

Speaking of style - Papillionaire's colour stands out from the pack and features durable powder coated paint, colour matched fenders, chainguard, and rear rack creating a complete package that turns heads wherever you go and offers the functionality to make it your daily errand/grocery runner too.

With 4 models to choose from, there is a little bit of everything for every taste. Available in singlespeed, 3-speed, or 8-speed (we usually stock just 8-speeds) gives you pricepoints for every budget as well.

Pop in soon and take one for a test ride!
