Why change a classic design? That’s the thinking of jorg&olif, which has produced its Dutch City Bike without any major changes to the Dutch classic.
In fact, the only thing that has changed is the gears – the bike is available as a 1-speed. 3-speed or 8-speed. Order one and it’s delivered part-built to your local bike shop, who will finish off the construction.
It comes with front and rear lights, wheel lock & keys, bicycle pump, chain guard & coat guard, fenders & mudflap, back rack and strap, central kickstand and traditional Dutch bell. Prices start at $795 (around £400).
Sadly, only available in the US and Canada. For those of us in Europe, it’s probably just as cheap to ship in an original.
