Gazelle Classic
(a.k.a. traditional omafiets)

True class never goes out of style, and nowhere is this better exemplified than in this quintessential Dutch bike. The design of this frame has hardly changed since it first appeared around 125 years ago, and why would it? The riding position is comfortable, the step-over height is low, the weight is distributed evenly, and the wheelbase is luxuriously ideal.

As with a lot of high-quality Dutch bikes, the dynamo-powered LED lighting comes as standard on the Gazelle Classic, meaning that you don’t have to shop around for an after market set. Buying components like lights, racks, mudguards, and locks as part of the complete package helps to keep production costs down, and these are savings that are passed on to you.

Enclosed 3-speed Shimano hub gears, brakes, and drivetrain are key features of any traditional Dutch bike, and they help to keep all of the more delicate components protected from the elements. This means that you can pretty much forget about maintenance and just enjoy years of reliable service.

Travel to any Dutch city and the majority of the bikes that you find will be variations on this classic ‘omafiets’ theme – a nation of discerning bike riders undoubtedly knows what’s good for them! Although to the British eye it might look like a ladies Dutch bike, the traditional omafiets is used by men and women throughout the Continent – the low step-over frame is comfortable for everyone 🙂
