    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 £949 inc VAT and is finished in spring white with Oporto decals.

    “We are very proud of our new Oporto bike,†enthused Cooper Bikes MD Mike Cooper. “We 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.

    Nice, as long as I don't have to wear the outfit.

    It looks like the Classic Dutch Oma Bicycle, the sit up and beg of bike design. Very comfortable riding position on flat ground like they have over there. I rented one for the first month I lived there, then bought a crossover mountain bike of sorts for riding in the dunes over bike paths.
