…ready to sing in the rain? Wait until you put on your new favorite rain poncho by fashion label Otto London.

The Urban Poncho: A slick European-styled, all-weather garment for the urban cyclist inspired by native South American designs. Featuring waterproof Oxford nylon outer, inner grey cotton lining, two-way zip, inner pocket with zip and straps to hold onto handle bar.
Why we ♥ it: The colors. The pieces from the collection come in bright, friendly colors and make you smile while cycling in the rain. The cut: it just fits perfectly. No matter if your walking or cycling. Sometimes rain capes move around whey you cycle or don’t cover your legs while pedalling. But the Urban Poncho stays in shape.
The Urban Poncho comes in different beautiful colors. Check out the Otto London Collection here.
What a great birthday gift for our founders Mela and Eva, who both celebrate their birthdays this week.

After spending some work and play time in Taiwan we went straight to the Berliner Fahrradschau / Berlin Bicycle Week to celebrate the launch of The Allthatiwant Skirt-Garter “Fantastic Frill” Edition. For the first time we’ve had the chance to present the new edition of the Skirt Garter to a larger audience, with the intention to collect valuable feedback from cyclists and customers.
In addition to The Skirt Garter we brought the “radkappe” – the hair-friendly bike helmet to the show and the combination of the two products at our “BIKE LOVE” themed booth got us lots of great press and media coverage. We have to admit, we were a bit intimidated by industry giants like Canyon or Levi’s. BUT literally the first customer approaching our booth telling us “this is exactly what I’ve been looking for!” and “this makes my (bike) life so much easier!” gave us a pretty good confidence boost and showed us we’re on the right track! YAY!
But besides being very proud of our booth, having lots of fun and learning tons from other great companies in terms of presenting their products and designs, we’ve met lots of new buyers and stores (for example from Iceland…how cool is that!). Shortly we’ll as well add new products from cool bike and fashion brands we’ve met at the show. So stay tuned for NEW ARRIVALS!

After a quick stop in Beijing we’ll be exploring Taiwan for the next few weeks. Taiwan is Asia’s top cycling destination and compared with it’s booming design and fashion scene we’re hoping to meet inspiring bike and fashion entrepreneurs and of course bring home some new cycle style inspirations.

Do you guys remember when in Season 7, Episode 9 Ross finds out that Phoebe never owned a bike so he buys her the prettiest pink bike out there and teaches Phoebe how to ride a bicycle. That’s what true frieds do! Awww ao much love for Ross!
Athletic shoes are all over the place and we’ve decided, we’ll spend all spring running and cycling around in sneakers. Especially for long days of work ahead, we tend to go for comfy clothes and shoes. So investing in a pair of sneakers is your best bet. Our pick: New Balance. The classic design and great color combination make it easy to effortlessly look stylish.
