Berlin has up to 10 interesting vintage bicycles shop.
In one day and a XXL ToDo list i had to pick one shop only.
I picked well, Cicli Berlinetta is a blend of history and dream.
Founded at 2004, CB is one of the oldest classic bicycles shop in Berlin.
wherever your eyes go you catch details that make it feels all so authentic,
the kind that made by people, time and passion.
Cicli Berlinetta is Dustin (founder & owner), a cyclist and a deep road bicycles expert,
and above all, a real gentle host with great stories and advices.
“I like to think that each item carries someone’s life with it,
including the care and time someone must have given it in order for it to arrive here.
I hope whoever owns it next will keep that in mind, and treat the object well.
Manoteca is a wooden house in a garden, a laboratory where old abandoned things
and salvaged materials are taken care of, thought-of a second time, and re-assembled.
Everything is one-of-a-kind and unique, hand-crafted and treated with natural,
now it waits for a bit of sun…
