Dutch Bikes

March 15, 2010

I really like the looks of the Dutch Bikes. I will take a look at the Batavus when they are in stock at Red Bike but I also found this site which also had some cute bikes. I feel like I should be in a black and white French movie with a Dutch Bike and a Baguette:)

I also read that Dutch bikes are also called “Omafiet” which means Grandma Bike. This makes it even cooler for me as when I started showing my husband the Pashleys and the Dutch Bikes he remarked that they looked like “Grandma Bikes” Well I’m not a grandma yet but I sure what a Pashley or Dutch Bike.

My Dutch Bike

I am a very visual person and if I like something that is mostly what matters to move over the specific details of a bike. I’ve also haven’t found a definitive site to give me more information on these lovelies.

Maybe someday I’ll own one along with my hybrid and Future Pashley. I only wish my husband was more into these classic looks as he could get one too but oh no…not him:)

    I like to pretend I’m in a B&W French film. My life certainly would be more interesting 🙂

    I hope you’re able to try out the Batavus you like. Those feel quite different from Pashleys, in my experience. They are equally beautiful, though!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one that has the daydream:) I will be trying out the Batavus hopefully in a couple of months but I really want to also test ride the Azor Oma before making my final decision. I think I’m driving my husband nuts with my indecesion

    I tried both the Pashley and Batavus at Redbike when I was visiting Edmonton. They were both great, but the Batavus fit better. The Pashley had a lovely loud bell tho’. It startled me when I tested it on the street.
    Enjoy the test ride!
