See this Quirky Bicycle?
Rather than resting on its side standard or a back standard, it rests on its front standard in front of a shop in The Noordeinde in The Hague.
Off course when I hear or see “Lola” I associate that immediately with the famous Kinks song “Lola“, but this is not about that Lola and maybe I’m too old for you to remember this;-)
The name of the shop is Lola Bikes and Coffee soon daringly being opened officially in the posh Noordeinde in The Hague directly opposite the Lion’s Den of the huge Dutch coffee brand Douwe Egberts.
A Combined Bicycle Show Room and Coffee Bar
The owners of a bicycle rental shop a couple of houses away from this new shop have taken the initiative to combine renting bicycles with selling extraordinary nice new bicycles while serving coffee in a trendy bar and also combined with the repair shop in the back of the bar. Clever and daring. I wish them a lot of success!
They’ve issue a trendy Bicycle magazine already. Their web presence is limited to a FB page for the moment but will come soon. I had a feeling the owner (left) was discussing the website with the designer….and through the window you can just see the coffee Goliath’s name (Soon to be divested from Sara Lee).

like it !
So appropriate, Lola, a song about someone who is not really what they appear to be! I love a place where the is the meeting of two worlds. The whole is definitely the greater than the sum of the parts.
One should be innovative, make small changes to some old things and they look better this is because it is in human nature to welcome change (of course positive). Resting of a bicycle on its front standard is something I have neither seen nor thought but it’s a cool change.
Superb shop!All bicycle is nice.
