Started as an Online Shop in 2012.
Steel Vintage Bikes started as an online store in 2012 with a focus on refurbishing and bringing back to life the steel road bikes of the golden ages of cycling. Focusing primarily on steel framed bikes from the 1890s up to the 1990s, Steel Vintage Bikes works to restore and refurbish vintage frames to their former glory.
Soon SVB became the world leading destination for unique and hand-made bicycles, retro apparel and bike components.
The first concept store & café was opened in 2014.
After 2 years and a successful crowdfunding campaign our first showroom & coffee shop was opened! It was a step from starting as an online business to having a physical body, being offline. Our big goal was to create a showroom for world's best handmade bicycles combined with a café to chill out, drink a cup of good coffee, local beer and eat some healthy home-made food.
Today Steel Vintage Bikes Café is more than just a coffee shop – it offers excellent choices of international cuisine with the focus on breakfast, bowls, sandwiches and speciality coffee. A big part of our concept is the cycle store featuring vintage and modern handmade bicycles, apparel and even a high-end roadbike rental (in cooperation with PlanetX).
So what's next?
The right mix between the café and concept store works well and we are looking forward to be opening our second café in Berlin in 2019! So stay tuned and say hi to our great team...
