Papillionaire Bicycles – new colours + BIKE GIVEAWAY!

by Lucy Feagins, Editor
Monday 15th August 2011

Papillionaire‘s Sommer bikes in brand new colours – Ferst (green) and Latte.  You could WIN one of these bikes this week!

OMG. I am not sure if you’re quite ready for this level of excitement on a Monday morning, but here goes. This week we are very lucky to be giving away a gorgeous PAPILLIONAIRE BICYCLE to one lucky TDF reader!

How cool is THAT!?

You may recall just over a year ago I posted about local bike company Papillionaire, whose fabulous Dutch-inspired bikes have taken the market by storm, what with their gorgeous vintage styling, sweet customisation options and super reasonable price point!

Papillionaire have just launched a new range of fabulous colours for summer – in addition to the gorgeous existing colourways, girly girls can now purchase a Sommer (girl’s style bike) in ‘Latte’, ‘Milk’ or ‘Ferst’ (minty green). Boys (or less girly girls) can purchase a Classic (boy’s style bike) in ‘Haut’ (red) or ‘Ferst’.  DO pop over to the Papillionaire website and have a look at ALL the fab colours – it has never been so easy to co-ordinate your wardrobe with your wheels!

Papillionaire would love to celebrate the launch of their brand new colour range with this very special Design Files giveaway!  This week one lucky TDF reader will win a Sommer bike in their choice of either Latte or Ferst!  This prize is valued at $499.00.

As this is a particularly special giveaway, you have 5 DAYS to enter.  To be in the running, simply leave a comment on this post anytime between now and this Friday August 19th at 10.00pm, Melbourne time. One comment per reader only please! A winner will be drawn at random and contacted by email early next week.  Giveaway open to Australian residents only.

*UPDATE – Thankyou so so much dear readers for the incredible response to this giveaway!  A winner has now been randomly drawn – comment #614 was the very lucky number – congratulations Jes! So sorry to all who missed out – I wish I could give each and every reader a new bike, Oprah style… thanks so much everyone! x

Huge thanks to Papillionaire for this fabulous giveaway!  Do share the love by visiting Papillionaire’s website, and you can also follow them on Facebook.

*Please don’t fret if WordPress is a little slow to accept your comment this morning – we anticipate quite a response ! If you have trouble commenting this morning simply pop back to this post later today or anytime before 10.00pm this Friday to leave your comment.  :) Thanks and good luck!

    Ok. I don’t live in inner city anymore. I live in the burbs (& do love it I must say). But I read TDF & often feel old/suburban/unhip/daggy. I remember when you featured these bikes a yr ago I imagined myself riding along the Gardiners Creek Path, baguette & flowers in basket, ballet shoes, stripy top on- looking tres chic. The school mums would be envious, “who is that stylish woman?” “was that Audrey Hepburn that just rode past?”. I must end here, time to walk (yes walk- how boring!) to kinder & school.

My vision also included a pretty red dress and lipstick but considering how unfit I am, and how many hills there are around here, maybe that’s a bit unrealistic… I promise to try my best though if I have the means!

    (To the tune of Mark Ronson — The Bike Song)

    Shooting round the city bends on my brand new Papillionaire,
Thinking how amazing life is,
    I sing a little Summer melody in my head,
I clasp onto the leather grips and ring my shiny new bell.

    My sister tells me I should stop go and get a real job,
That can’t be the way that I roll,
Everybody’s growing up, having kids and paying rent,
But I’m getting the best of it all.

    I’m gonna ride my Papillionaire until I get home,
I’m gonna ride my Papillionaire until I get home,
I’m gonna ride my Papillionaire until I get home,
Gonna ride my Papillionaire until I get home…

  • Josette Gardiner 5 years ago

    I have always struggled with the saying ” It’s as easy as riding a bike” as this was a skill i somehow skipped as a child, we lived in a busy suburb in sydney and my gorgeous caring mum was terrified of us having bikes and riding on the road and as a result – i am yet to master the confidence and balance of bike riding…. but i am oh so keen and have been toying with buying a bike so one day i can ride the hills outside Paris!! The mint coloured bike is so divine!! please please please…

  • etta 5 years ago

    There once was a girl from Old Melbourne town,
    Who’s carbon footprint would bring many a frown,
    But along came Papillionare
    With the most stylish of cycling fare

    Carbon crunching never looked so good!

  • Leonie 5 years ago

    Incredible give-away! I am from the Netherlands (perhaps the country with the most fanatic bike riders?!) and recently moved to Canada. I miss having (and seeing) “real bikes” like back in Holland. Most bicycles are so sporty, kind of a mix between a mountain bike and a race bike – at least in my eyes. I like cycling, but preferably on a vintage looking bike. Like the typical black “grandma bike” you see in Holland, or a cute one like these papillionaire bicycles. If I would win one, I would take it out for a spin along the waterfront, right to the beach. And I’d have all the necessary goodies in my basket. Perfect!

  • Michael Jak 5 years ago

    I’d love to front up to the Saturday bunch on this

  • Rachel 5 years ago

  • Bespoke Letterpress 5 years ago

    Oh yippeee, how fabulous!!!

  • Wowee Lucy! Your giveaways are always so generous and I honestly didn’t think they could get any bigger but this one from Papillionaire tops them all.

    A Sommer bicycle has been on my wish list ever since you featured Papillionaire Bicycles on The Design Files. In fact a Sommer bicycle from Papillionaire was the first pin on my “I Want To Ride My Bicycle, I Want To Ride My Bike” board on Pinterest.

    Best of luck to everyone.
