Cooper Bikes has launched the new Cooper Oporto ladies bicycle. The bicycle division of the Cooper Car Company said the Oporto is elegant, simple and high quality, featuring a sophisticated riding position for comfort and a smooth ride. The frame is built from Reynolds lugged double butted tubing, with a Brooks leather saddle and handle bar grips, and Sturmey Archer five-speed internal hub gears. The bike will retail in the UK at Â£949 inc VAT and is finished in spring white with Oporto decals. â€œWe are very proud of our new Oporto bike,â€ enthused Cooper Bikes MD Mike Cooper. â€œWe wanted the perfect ladies bicycles and we think we have done it.â€ Since the brand launched in 2009, Cooper Bikes has clocked up over 3,000 bicycles, with distribution into the UK, USA, Germany, China, Australia, Japan and South Korea.
