Drew Duff-Dob­son, aka Triple-D, pretty much fol­lows his dreams.

The latest man­i­fes­ta­tion of that com­bines his love for cof­fee and bikes with the aptly named Blend, a new store serv­ing both at 9 Mt Eden Road.

So far, so hipster. Ex­cept the Tokyo range of bikes are both stylish and prac­ti­cal, and ac­tu­ally sport a de­cent set of gears to help riders get up those Auck­land hills. Best of all, prices range from $990-$1190, and the bikes have a steel frame. Steel is real.

FYI: the cof­fee is de­li­cious. It’s Duff-Dob­son’s own brand – Smith Cof­fee.
